This subject examines the Australian and Victorian postcompulsory education and training landscapes and the role of schools and other education providers in enabling successful outcomes for young people. The postcompulsory landscapes are examined through several different lenses: factors influencing school completion, regional, gender and socio-economic differences in school completion, early leaving and its causes and outcomes, career exploration and education in schools, the role of vocational, technical and applied learning, and post-school transitions to employment, vocational education and higher education. The subject assesses the strengths and weaknesses of current policies and approaches from both strategic and theoretical perspectives. Within this subject students will develop an understanding of the current trends and patterns in Australian postcompulsory education and the implications for their own practice. The key themes within this subject will be explored through the use of case studies and data from the current and recent research of the teaching team.
