Apprenticeships and Vocations: Assessing the Impact of Research on Policy and Practice. Research Report
Hargreaves, Jo
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
This report assesses the impact of the National Centre for Vocational Education Research's (NCVER) research against two themes: the role of apprenticeships in a modern economy (focusing on work relating to completions) and the nature of the vocations and competencies required by industry. The evaluation spans work published from 2005 to 2015 and examines the impact of 32 publications, complemented by input from a number of stakeholders who were asked to report on their use of NCVER's research outputs. The evaluation, based on a combination of quantitative metrics and qualitative methodology, shows how NCVER's publications are influencing policy and practice in the vocational education and training (VET) sector. The following are appended: (1) Respondents; and (2) Editorial Board Member Biographies. A section with previous impact studies by NCVER is included.
