The 27th National Vocational Education and Training Research Conference 'No Frills' was co-hosted by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) and New Zealand partners, the Industry Training Federation and Ako Aotearoa on 15-17 August 2018. 'No Frills' is a well-known annual national conference where researchers and practitioners in the vocational education and training (VET) sector come together to present, discuss and share information about key issues confronting the sector. By partnering with New Zealand, this year's conference provided an excellent opportunity to highlight international evidence for benchmarking policy best practice. The conference also provided valuable professional development opportunities to enhance research capacity and capability in the VET sector by incorporating activities on data and research analytics, and research practice. The 2018 conference program focused on Skills for a global future: working and learning together.
