Coming soon

Exciting changes are taking place on the VOCEDplus website. In the next month, VOCEDplus will be refreshing its look and providing enhanced search functionality to two key areas:

  • the Advanced Search page will offer a much simpler guided search and a new expert search tool, and there will be a new search functionality for the Glossary of VET
  • a new special collection dedicated to offering links to papers from key VET conferences has also been created to make it easier for researchers to locate these key resources

To learn more about these new enhancements, join our experienced VOCEDplus team in an upcoming webinar. This webinar will also provide a refresher on accessing and using VOCEDplus to discover current and past research, including NCVER publications, landmark reports, and grey literature.

The webinar will take place on Thursday 21 May 2015, 2.30 - 3.30pm AEST. For more information and to register for the webinar, visit the NCVER Portal.

Forthcoming NCVER webinar

Qualifications: an international approach

Thursday 30 April 2015, 2.30pm to 3.30pm AEST

Presenter: Josie Misko, Senior Research Fellow, National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
Discussant: Nicholas Huntington, Senior Project/Research Analyst, Ako Aotearoa, National Centre for Tertiary Education Excellence

This free webinar will focus on selected international approaches to the development, approval, maintenance and quality assurance of vocational education and training (VET) qualifications, covering common themes such as the development of national hierarchical qualification frameworks and formal systems for outcomes-based quality assurance and government-endorsed qualification development and approval. Internationally, few systems report specific processes for removing qualifications - an important issue for training systems with large numbers of qualifications such as in Australia - and the webinar will feature a discussion on the New Zealand approach to qualifications review and removal.

Further information about this free webinar is available on the NCVER portal.
