Varieties of learning : the interface between higher education and vocational education and training by Australia( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 100 libraries worldwide
A wide range of issues and challenges facing the Australian higher education sector was raised by the Ministerial discussion paper 'Higher education at the crossroads' (indexed at TD/TNC 71.381). This issues paper explores those issues which relate to the interface between the higher education and vocational education and training (VET) sectors. It looks at some of the barriers to further partnerships such as the differences in the learning and assessment processes between the sectors and the lack of information for students about the available options. It begins by describing the two sectors, the factors shaping the relationship and the nature of the interface. It then goes on to consider the following key issues: credit transfer; articulation/joint courses; dual sector universities; multi-sector campuses; infrastructure sharing in regional areas; research collaboration; qualifications issues; and the impact of future demand on both sectors. The paper concludes with some alternatives for ways forward to strengthen inter-sectoral links

University credit for school students by Jane Figgis( Book )
4 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 55 libraries worldwide
This study was undertaken to accurately map the opportunities secondary school students have to study university units for credit and to document the policies and conditions which facilitate (or impede) student access to such programs. Anecdotal evidence had suggested - rightly, as it turns out - that universities and schools are increasingly interested in developing arrangements which enable school students to access university units. In part, their interest reflects a world-wide trend towards framing all of education in terms of lifelong learning with a concomitant blurring of boundaries between educational sectors. In part, too, their interest is a recognition that able Australian school students need, and deserve, the stimulation of challenging advanced study. The landscape of access to university study by Australian school students is extremely uneven. The first systematic programs were devised in 1993 by three universities. Two of those, provided by Monash University and the University of Melbourne, remain the most comprehensive. They cater for the largest numbers of students and have the greatest (State-wide) reach. Indeed, with their combined total of more than 1000 student enrolments annually they account for nearly half the current Australian total of 2050 enrolments. The growth in accredited university study for school students has been gradual but steady. Twenty-three of the 37 universities which took part in this study have put in place at least one such program1. Many of the others are seriously investigating the possibility of developing a program in the future. Outside the two largest programs, the arrangements range in size from 142 students to six or seven
