Building research capacity - National mentoring scheme

The National Centre for Vocation and Education Research are currently funding a three-year national program (2008-2011) to build researcher capacity in the vocation, education and training (VET) sector.

This study is piloting the mentoring of new researchers in VET nationwide and evaluating the project. The primary objective of the program is to build the research skills of practitioners by supporting their progress as they produce and present VET research studies, so they may present their findings at national VET research forums.

The study involves developing mentoring relations with more than 30 new researchers and tracking and developing their capability through action learning projects that focus on issues in their own organisation.
