Client: Australian Education Union
Working with higher education specialist Simon Marginson and VET specialist Leesa Wheelahan on an issues paper for the Australian Education Union, researchers at the WRC explored issues of knowledge, vocation and articulation between VET, higher education and the labour market. The paper considered divergences and convergences between VET and higher education, including general and vocational streams of education and training, and their importance in a dynamic labour market.
