Abstract

Technology and VET in Schools teachers are required to bridge the gap between industry and workplace knowledge and the world of secondary schools. One of the ways in which these teachers can be assured of having sufficient knowledge of the technologies required for the broad and varied subjects offered in Technology and Applied Studies in NSW schools and also be well prepared to teach VET Industry Curriculum Framework courses, is to take teachers from an industry background and return them to schools after an accelerated teacher training program. This paper examines some of the findings of a longitudinal study which took a case study approach to try and find out how some of these teachers have coped with the demands of pedagogy and practice in rural and regional NSW schools.
