|Subject Overview:||This subject examines the national context and range of approaches to postcompulsory education and training in Victoria and, more broadly, across Australia. Topics include trends in school completion, factors underlying retention, regional socio-economic differences in school completion, early leaving and its causes and outcomes, participation in vocational education and training (VET) and post-school transition to employment, training and higher education. Besides setting the context, the course focuses on social and economic influences on participation and on policy responses. The subject assesses the strengths and weaknesses of policies from both strategic and theoretical perspectives. It draws on the broad range of research studies conducted in the area of postcompulsory education and training by the Centre for Postcompulsory Education and Lifelong Learning (CPELL)|
