1506 Vocational Education and Training: the national agenda for research, development and evidence (June 2015)

A workshop was held on 3rd June 2015 at Pearson in London, on the national agenda for research, development and evidence about Vocational Education and Training. Timed to coincide with the long overdue creation of a new research centre for VET it also provided an opportunity to review progress towards a National VET Centre as envisaged in the proposals of the Commission on Adult Vocational Teaching & Learning. Discussion about the agenda for VET research was stimulated by inputs from the leaders of the BIS Centre for Vocational Education Research and the Education and Training Foundation and by responses on behalf of the academic and practice communities. A mix of practice leaders, academic researchers and people from intermediary organisations pooled their experience and knowledge to develop key messages about the agenda for research on the VET system.

Here are links to the main inputs to the discussion:

Outlines of current VET work by organisations and individuals participating in the workshop can be found here.
