Re-engaging disadvantaged learners in education, training and employment

Our policy paper looks at ways to re-engage disadvantaged learners in the Victorian Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector.

Vulnerable learners often face a number of barriers to engaging in education such as caring responsibilities, inadequate accommodation, physical and mental health conditions, disability, negative experiences of schooling and low levels of confidence in the classroom.

By offering holistic support, flexible learning environments, sustained engagement and clear pathways into further education and employment, disadvantaged learners can reach their potential.

In this paper, we make recommendations across four key areas to reform the VET sector to more effectively cater for disadvantaged learners.
