Shedding light: Private RTO training for young early school leavers

Kira Clarke

Project Details

The purpose of the project is to examine the role of private RTOs in providing training to early school leavers aged 15-19. The project will explore the manner in which private RTOs are employing flexible and responsive approaches in their training of early school leavers. It aims to identify innovation
and adaptation of conventional approaches to vocational training, as well as the shortcomings that might point to the need for changes to delivery practice.
