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.
