New Zealand Vocational Education and Training Research Forum - presentations now online

Presentations from the NZ VET Research forum are now available via the forum's website.

As an adjunct to Day ONE and Day TWO notes taken during the conference, here are brief overviews of relevant concurrent presentations I missed out on attending below.

What is the value of Youth Guarantee Fees Free? with Adelaide Reid from The collaborative. Summarised surveys and interviews with Youth Gaurantee 2015 participants. A longitudinal study from 2016 - 2018 to find out outcomes from attending YG programmes at community colleges, YMCA and Unitec. At start, YG's perspective was to obtain employment post programme, qualifications were less important. What worked and didnt work were summarised. Will be interesting to see how this project progresses as the study continues.

Exploring student perception of learning in a work-integrated learning environment presented by Chantal Pillay from Le Cordon Bleu. Background on programme and structure of WIL.Findings feed back into curriculum planning.
