Many people will be aware of the various activities NCVER has been undertaking to determine priorities for research in VET beyond 2015.
The Research Prospectus 2015-16 is an important planning document. I highly recommend it! There is an email address to share any thoughts you have regarding these priorities.
The NCVER webinar held on 12 March 2015 was very helpful. I believe NCVER will provide a recording of the event shortly, probably at their consultation site.
