25 October 2017, All day
The Industry Training Federation and Ako Aotearoa are partnering to host the 14th New Zealand Vocational Education and Training Research Forum. This will be taking place over the 25th & 26th of October 2017.
We use the term 'bpcational' in its broadest sense, encompassing not just what is traditionally thought of as the VET, but also professional educatuon, intergrating workplace ele,emts into education programmes, and using skills to support good outcomes for workers, idustries and communities. The following themes and more will be explored
- Outcomes, ecosystems, and transitions: How do we achieve outcomes that benefit learners, industries, and communities – and how can we encourage ‘joined up VET’ that works across discipline and sector boundaries?
- Labour markets and the future of work: How does or should education relate to employment and the challenges involved in new work environments?
- Data and Methodologies: How can we effectively research and evaluate vocational and skills-focused education, and what can existing or new data sources tell us about effects for various stakeholders?
- Diversity: How can we promote diversity within VET, and how can skills-focused education be used to support marginalised people and communities?
