22nd Annual Conference of the Australasian Vocational Education and Training Research Association (AVETRA)

‘No future for old VET’: Researching for the training system/s of tomorrow

17-18 June 2019, Parramatta, Sydney

It is well-recognised that current rapid economic and industrial developments, as well as changes in society, are affecting the demands placed upon VET systems both in Australia and elsewhere. As well, the Australian VET system has had internal challenges which need addressing. To meet all of these challenges, and to plan strategically for the future, a strong research base is needed. This AVETRA conference will bring together VET researchers and those interested in using research to inform policy and practice, to discuss and debate these vital matters.

July

NCVER No Frills conference 2019

The student journey: skilling for life

10–12 July 2019, TAFE SA Adelaide

As explored at past ‘No Frills’ conferences, the world of work is changing, driven by rapid technological evolution in an increasingly global society. It’s almost certain that the skills we develop today won’t be enough to operate or compete effectively in the workplaces of tomorrow.

Will it be enough for our future workers to earn a single qualification or learn only a few different skills? Where do employability skills fit into the mix?

While every student’s journey is different, more and more research and discussion points to how workers must become lifelong learners to enable them to grow and evolve with their jobs. VET plays a critical role in making this happen.

Critical re-imagining: adult literacy and numeracy practices for sustainable development

It is a plan to end poverty and hunger, to protect our planet, to enable all human beings to enjoy prosperous and fulfilling lives in peaceful, just and inclusive societies.

People. Place. Partnerships
