The Latest Prehistoric Discovery - Vocational Education and Training in Australia!
http://nswlearnscope.com/2007/12/19/breathe-234/ This post by Robyn Jay, is a gift to all of us wishing to ensure the future of education, the quality and standard, learners, the workforce, business, industry, enterprise, our nation in a globally networked world. Traditionalist policy, IGNORANCE above all has us in this prehistoric place - one rapidly spiralling downwards to a place, a time when only 'critters of microscopic proportions' could be found - A new Australia. An Australia that the world and time forgot! Robyn thank you - I am off to dig out an email that I was sent by management in TAFE - VET in response to a similar query I made a few months ago - it is less in words but it made me speechless (that is saying something). I SHOUT to everyone who cares about education, learning, learners - our children - our grandchildren and beyond, to join us all on this quest - one we CAN NOT AFFORD TO LOSE. Share your experiences, responses from management, access policies and the like. Time enough lost. OUR VOICES, OUR LEARNERS VOICES, INDUSTRY VOICES, ALL WHO HAVE CHOSEN TO LEAVE A WORLD OF IGNORANCE AND MEDIOCRITY AND UNDERSTAND THE NOW, THE REAL, THE FUTURE. UNITE AND DEMAND THE KEY TO OPEN WHAT IS DENIED, TRAPPING, SUFFOCATING AND DISABLING, GUTTING AND TEARING THE SOUL FROM VET EDUCATION, PROVIDERS AND CLIENTS IN AUSTRALIA, LEAVING IT SHALLOW AND EMPTY (LITERALLY, AS BUMS ON SEATS DECREASE).
