Martínez-Morales, Ignacio; Marhuenda-Fluixá, Fernando – Journal of Vocational Education and Training, 2020

Billett, Stephen; Choy, Sarojni; Hodge, Steven – Journal of Vocational Education and Training, 2020
In Australia, the relatively low standing of vocational education and the occupations it serves is of growing concern.
