VE for the 21st Century

Andrea ChesterUncategorizedLeave a Comment

This paper by Anne Jones on the future of qualifications for VE teachers may be of interest.

This paper starts with history, looking at how late twentieth-century vocational education revolution and counter-revolution trapped Australia’s VE sector in a pre-digital time warp. The discussion reflects on promising concepts of VE emerging in other countries as they grapple with C21st challenges: what we can we learn from them and from our own experience. Finally, the paper reimagines vocational education in Australia as it could be to increase inclusivity, innovation and prosperity.

Anne Jones is currently working with the Education Portfolio on the program architecture project.
