The 29th National Vocational Education and Training Research Conference 'No Frills' was held online for the first time ever on 7-10 July 2020. 'No Frills' is a well-known annual national conference where researchers, practitioners, providers and industry representatives come together and share knowledge, ideas, insights and solutions around Australia's vocational education and training (VET) sector. The conference also provides valuable professional development opportunities through a program of hands-on pre-conference workshops or focus sessions incorporating activities on data and research analytics, and research practice.
The theme for the 2020 conference was 'Workforce ready: challenges and opportunities for VET'. The successful transition of an employee from education to job is essential to building a strong economy. But in a world where workplaces are rapidly evolving alongside technology and market demand, what does it mean to be 'workforce ready'? And what is VET's role in preparing students for work? There is much debate over how our future workforce landscapes will look, or what skills our workers will need to be successful at their jobs. However, one thing is clear, almost all workers will need to upskill or retrain throughout their working lives. What challenges and opportunities does this present for VET, and what plans should we be making for the future?; Edited abstract from publisher's website.
