Investigating quality teaching in the Victorian VET sector
The objective of the research is to conduct primary research that seeks to answer the question of what is quality teaching in the VET sector. The research will produce a developmental learning framework for the VET teaching profession using methods that have been well-tested in other educational settings, and the model will distinguish between levels of VET teacher proficiency from novice to expert and will be underpinned by relevant learning theories. The process of developing the framework is designed to account for implementation issues and to maximise sector engagement. The final report will inform the government and the sector about what constitutes high quality VET teaching, and provide advice and a tool for training providers to use in developing the capacity of their teaching staff.
