"New times" abound. In the central worlds of work and education there is evidence of such change. Increasing reliance on casualisation of the work-force in education, especially in TAFE the public provider of VET, is but one of the outcomes of such change. Whilst there has been recent research undertaken on TAFE teachers and the changing environment there has been very little empirical research, if any, on the experiences and views of both TAFE teachers and students about the process of employment casualisation and effective teaching. However, anecdotally there is concern that employment casualisation has a negative impact on effective teaching in TAFE. Thus it is timely that this thesis should explore the question "what impact is this growing cluster on non-permanent, part-time employment modes referred to in this study as 'casualisation' having on students' and teachers' views of effective teaching in TAFE?
