Abstract:

This paper reports on the findings of a three-year project in Australia funded by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research [NCVER] on how to improve pathways within and between education and work. Governments around the world are seeking to increase the percentage in the population that have higher-level qualifications in response to demands for higher-level skills in the workforce, and to support social inclusion. Many countries have set targets to achieve these goals, and educational pathways are intrinsic to achieving them.
