About the forum

The NZVETRF provides an open environment for sharing work that has potential to shape practices, systems, and policies. 

As an event designed to promote the sharing of findings across sectors and to support change, the NZ VET Research Forum includes presentations on evidence-based practical initiatives as well as findings from applied and basic research. 

We use the term ‘vocational’ in its broadest sense, encompassing not just what is traditionally thought of as VET, but also professional education, integrating workplace elements into education programmes, and using skills to support good outcomes for workers, industries, and communities.

The forum will be of relevance to all educators, researchers, policymakers, and organisations who work in the areas of vocational, professional, and skills-based learning.
