OctoberVET 2014!

What is OctoberVET?

This year’s national OctoberVET coordinator, Steven Hodge, would like you to consider convening an OctoberVET event in your area. OctoberVET is the name of a season of local events to share information and ideas about VET. OctoberVET complements AVETRA’s annual conference, and as the name suggests, it runs through October (with a few events usually spilling into November as well). OctoberVET events range in size and scope, depending on local needs and interests, and range from convivial, small-scale gatherings to larger formal events with speakers. Events can be brief (a couple of hours) or can span a whole day.
 
Last year’s themes will give you an idea of variety of interests gathered together under the OctoberVET banner:
  • Research into policy and practice for schools, training providers and workplaces.
  • Research & Evaluation in Vocational Education: The role of evidence/Engaging & Supporting Distance-based Learners in the Workplace.
  • What is happening in VET research.
  • Engaging adolescents in Education: A gathering of minds and experiences.
  • Building research capacity and culture in VET.
  • Reflective practice in VET – why bother? How does it enhance business?
  • Exploring the relationships between the ACE and VET sectors.

Get in touch with Steven Hodge (national OctoberVET coordinator) to discuss your ideas and find out how to get the OctoberVET ball rolling. Call him at the Office: 07 37355712 or on his mobile: 0421224474 or email him at s.hodge@griffith.edu.au.
