Wellington 25th and 26th October 2017
The Industry Training Federation (ITF) and Ako Aotearoa are proud to jointly host the 14th New Zealand Vocational Education and Training Research Forum (NZVETRF), New Zealand’s largest forum dedicated specifically to research on career-, work-, and skills-oriented education and training.
The NZVETRF provides an open environment for sharing work that has potential to shape practices, systems, and policies.
As an event designed to promote the sharing of findings across sectors and to support change, the NZ VET Research Forum includes presentations on evidence-based practical initiatives as well as findings from applied and basic research.
We use the term ‘vocational’ in its broadest sense, encompassing not just what is traditionally thought of as VET, but also professional education, integrating workplace elements into education programmes, and using skills to support good outcomes for workers, industries, and communities.
The forum will be of relevance to all educators, researchers, policymakers, and organisations who work in the areas of vocational, professional, and skills-based learning.
The final programme is now available. We are delighted to announce our keynote speakers:
Day 1 – Professor Stephen Billet; Griffith University and Craig Fowler; National Centre for Vocational Education Research
Day 2 - Distinguished Professor Paul Spoonley, Massey University and Phil Walker, Statistics New Zealand
Please download the final programme here.
This year’s forum will be held on Wednesday October 25 and Thursday October 26, at the Rydges Hotel, Wellington.
