WorldSkills Australia, Dusseldorp Skills Forum and RMIT are partnering to find out about excellence in skills. Over the course of the WorldSkills Australia National Competition MoVE asked all the competitors and judges to share their experience via an online questionnaire. This partnership builds on the research project akready undertaken through the University of Tampere, Finland, by Dr. Petri Nokelainen that explored questions of vocational excellence.
After the Competition MoVE will engage family, employers and mentors in the questionnaire and develop a comprehensive picture of what makes for excellence in skills.
TRAC was a pioneering program of vocational learning for school students in Years 11 and 12 centred around structured and assessed work placements. It was designed and developed in 1989 by the Dusseldorp Skills Forum.
