Event Details

29 October 2019

Interim report launch for the Australian Research Council Discovery Project, Vocational institutions, undergraduate degrees.

Degrees of difference — Examining, the scope, provision and equity effects of degrees in vocational institutions.

This event launches the interim findings of the Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery project Vocational institutions, Undergraduate degrees and commences a consultation process to inform the final stages of the project.

At the heart of this ARC Discovery project is the desire to understand what new tertiary qualifications are being offered by Australia’s TAFE institutions through the recent expansion of higher education in traditionally vocational institutions and whether these offerings drive innovation and increase the participation of all equity groups in higher education. And what, if anything, is distinctive about these higher education offerings in vocational institutions?

There will be an expert panel discussing the distinctiveness of higher education in TAFE institutes and a discussion about the importance of provision in different providers.
