Skills and workforce development
From Competencies to Capabilities 2012
Client: University of Melbourne/NSW Board of Vocational Education and Training
The WRC, in conjunction with the LH Martin Institute for Leadership and Management in Higher Education at the University of Melbourne, have examined the viability of creating an intermediate level VET qualification underpinned by the capabilities approach in two vocational streams: agriculture and health care. This stems from the current interest by BVET in a project that will be conducted over a number of years that tests the extent to which the capabilities approach can be used to underpin qualifications, and the extent to which this will help increase VET's effectiveness in supporting workforce development and innovation, and social inclusion. This project is concerned with stage one of the research - analysis and initial engagement with relevant stakeholders.
