2016 'No Frills' conference

Call for presentations open - abstracts due by COB Monday 22 February 2016

NCVER's 25th National VET Research Conference 'No Frills', co-hosted with CQUniversity', will be held in Rockhampton from Monday 4 - Wednesday 6 July 2016. It highlights research across three themes:

  • Equity: supporting diversity through promoting inclusive training opportunities for all Australians
  • Engagement: students, providers, employers and government working together to improve access, participation and outcomes from training
  • Evolution: developing a skilled and flexible workforce to adapt to rapid technological change in the workplace, and to improve national competitiveness.

The call for presentations and poster sessions is now open and industry, practitioners and researchers are invited to share their work on vocational education and training (VET). Registration will open in March 2016 in conjunction with the program release.

More information about the conference is available on the NCVER portal.

This online interactive timeline provides a history of apprenticeships and traineeships in Australia starting from 1939 when 'dilutees' were allowed to perform some of the duties of tradespeople to the current period of VET reform. It includes links to key documents and legislation that have shaped vocational education and training policy along the way.

Accompanying this timeline is a 'New focus on...' page that provides links to key resources about apprenticeships and traineeships from Australia and internationally.
