Emerging models of employment based training: Untangling the drivers and identifying key features of effective models

Choy, Sarojni C., Haukka, Sandra, Billett, Stephen, Bowman, Kaye, & Wignall, Louise (2007) Emerging models of employment based training: Untangling the drivers and identifying key features of effective models. In 10th Annual Conference of the Australian VET Research Association (AVETRA), April 11-13, Melbourne, Australia.


This paper discusses a recent review of literature on employment based training (EBT) models in Australia, to identify those that might best address emerging needs. Examples of models currently being discussed and/or trialed are analysed in this review, including those being used in higher levels of the VET skills spectrum (i.e. diploma and above). The consideration of new EBT models is addressed in terms of the conference theme: Are emerging models of EBT evolutionary, revolutionary, status quo or "back to the future" approaches? Research suggests that traditional approaches to employment based training, such as apprenticeships and traineeships, are limited in meeting current and emerging skill formation contexts. New contemporary EBT models are held to be required for contemporary and emerging economic and work environments which are characterised by skills shortages, higher level skills needs, and global competition that demand quality skills and productivity.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
