Research Showing VET Is Making a Difference in Closing The Gap

I have just joined the NCVER webinar on Participation and Outcomes for Indigenous People Engaging in VET.   I recommend you watch out for the recording on NCVER’s website.  I was particularly heartened by the research of Crawford and Biddle of the Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research.

The data shown below was very powerful, particularly showing the differences between metropolitan / East Coast and remote Australia.  The interesting exception seems to be Tasmania.  I wonder what is going on there?
