Impact Analysis of proposed strengthened AQF 2010
Client: University of Melbourne
In 2010, the Workplace Research Centre undertook an evaluation of the likely impacts of proposed changes to the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). The project sought to unpack complexities associated with the AQF's role within the senior secondary school, vocational education and training, and higher education sectors, as well as its industrial and labour market implications. The project included four case studies across the agricultural, engineering, financial services and healthcare and community services sectors, using stakeholder interviews to draw out the key issues around the use of qualifications in each sector.
