Special collections

The special collections are compiled by the VOCEDplus team to allow users to quickly access sets of related items from the VOCEDplus database. Some items may appear in more than one collection. Many of these collections are living, growing resources that NCVER continues to develop and update on an ongoing basis.

VOCEDplus plays a key role in the archiving and preservation of vocational education and training (VET) research. Contained in some of the below special collections are historical sets of print publications that have been digitised and made freely available online with the permission of the copyright owner.
