Defining Vocational Streams: new report from NCVER

Posted: 26th Nov

The authors identify the potential for vocational streams – a set of linked occupations with related skills in a broad field of practice – in the areas of agriculture, financial services, engineering and healthcare/community services. To further explore this idea, they interview a range of stakeholders on the usefulness of a vocational stream framework for the labour market. This report identifies two preconditions for vocational streams as well as describes scenarios of how these preconditions play out in industry. This work is part of the three-year research program Vocations: the link between post compulsory education and the labour market.
