A paper presenting an analysis, using Stokes' concept of Pasteur's Quadrant, of recent New Zealand research into vocational education and training. Presented by Peter Coolbear at the Industry Training Federation's Vocational Education and Training Research Forum, April 2009.
This report provides a wide range of contextual and statistical information for industry training, including participation and completion analyses, and describes the results of statistical modelling on the influencers of success. It finds that industry; duration; and volume of learning are the most useful variables for predicting the outcomes of industry training programmes.
This project explores what learners think and feel about industry training; how they get into it and what they get out of it. The first stage of this project has involved a literature review and focus groups in the building and engineering industries, which have helped us to develop a preliminary understanding of what some learners from the traditional trades think about industry training.
Objective was to locate and synthesise literature about the 'how' or pedagogy of workplace learning, with particular emphasis on examples of 'best practice' in relation to apprenticeships and other forms of on-the-job training and also on workplace learning in relation to Competenz and specific industries (manufacturing, engineering, baking, food and beverage, maritime).
