NCVER Research Funding Round Closing Soon


Is the time flying by for you to get your research proposal into NCVER for the current funding round?  Are you looking for a partner or a collaborator for a proposal?

There is a wealth of information available on NCVER’s site BUT the closing date is Wednesday 13 April.  That’s not long if you have a proposal that you think will fit one of three categories:

  1. Meeting skill demand for the future
  2. New delivery and assessment modes (emerging technology)
  3. Future-proofing the VET workforce

Most of you have had much more experience in these processes than me.  However, it would seem a really good use of our Educator Hub platform if anyone has ideas they would like to throw around a bit with others.  Please feel free to make a comment in the area below and it could begin a great conversation that could help you hone your research question or broader proposal.  That’s what we are here for – to give and get support!




Call for Tender: Research on Work Based Learning


The Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB) in Germany, and UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (UNESCO-UNEVOC) are undertaking a collaboration research project which is envisaged to support the creation of a comparative knowledge base on the character and relevance of work-based learning (WBL) in different contexts.  This is an international research undertaking.

This project sounds incredibly interesting and I know there are many Educator Hub members who have significant expertise in WBL.  The details of the tender can be found at .  I came across this opportunity through membership of the UNESCO UNEVOC eForum. It is a great community of practice, and you can join at .

I hope this item is of interest to our members.  Please remember to comment below, or contact the admins of this site (by clicking Contact on the menu bar) if you’d like to be more active on the AVETRA Educator Hub.
