VET in Schools teacher training: Bridging two worlds

    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperConference paperpeer-review


    Students in Years 11 and 12 around most of Australia have responded enthusiastically to the introduction of vocational education and training (VET) courses into schools. However, the introduction of these courses has put pressure on teachers to ensure that such courses are accepted by industry and has necessitated training and retraining options for school staff. This paper discusses the Accelerated Teacher Training Program (ATTP) offered at Charles Sturt University (CSU). The Program combines online and other forms of distance education, problem-solving methodologies and increased workplace learning opportunities. This paper examines the first cohort due to complete the ATTP course at the end of 2002 in terms of participants, course design, context and implementation, focusing on the professional practice and problem solving elements of the course.
