Co-operative learning made easy
Knowing Practice is a study of practice-based learning across different occupations. In the trades, practice-based learning is usually called “apprenticeship”. In information technology industries, it’s known as “cadetship”. In the later stages of formal learning in medicine, social work, and teaching, it’s “practicum” or vocational “immersion”.

This project aims to explore the factors that are associated with apprentices and industry trainees at levels 3 and 4 not completing their qualification.
This collaborative project between Victoria University of Wellington and WelTec aims to assist tutors at New Zealand polytechnics to meet the literacy needs of all students, and in particular, Pasifika students.
The project aims are to answer the research question, How useful is continuing professional development for experienced teachers in the tertiary vocational education sector in New Zealand? and to identify how PD might look like for them in an ideal world.
