Development of an Australian VET Graduation Statement
The AQF Council released a consultation paper on the development of a VET Graduation Statement. A copy of the paper is available at http://www.aqf.edu.au/resources/reports/
During 2012, the Australian Qualifications Framework Council was requested by the Standing Council on Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment (SCOTESE) to investigate options for introducing a national approach to providing VET graduates with information about the qualification pathways available to them on the basis of the award of an AQF qualification. An investigation into the issues during 2012 recommended that it was feasible to document these pathways through the introduction of a VET Graduation Statement modelled on the existing national and international graduation statements.
The AQF Council has agreed to proceed to the next stage of the project which is to develop a graduation statement for the VET sector and to consider the issues regarding implementation across the sector. The consultation paper: Development of a VET Graduation Statement aims to stimulate discussion and to identify potential design and implementation issues.
Written feedback for this first stage of the project was due by close of business on Friday 15 November 2013 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Late submissions are welcome to provide input to the next stage of this project.< View all News
