The Centre explores new ideas to improve Australia’s education and training ecosystem in line with contemporary and emerging skill needs. We incubate new concepts through project activity, often partnering with other bodies.
Using a seed grant from the Victorian Department of Education and Training the project investigated the feasibility of a model for Workforce Readiness Partnerships Pods that would result in improved work readiness in VET graduates and therefore increased productivity in industry. The project scoped a model that: identifies and implements innovative industry-student activities across industry sectors that are attractive to companies, particularly SMEs; and established a central space for industry and TAFE provider representatives to interact on student-work activities which incorporated companies' enterprise skill needs. It provided an opportunity to increase the volume of companies and students involved, and led to collaboration on broader initiatives between industry and TAFE. The project completed at the end of 2018.
