Welcome to the 16th New Zealand Vocational Education and Training Research Forum

12th November 2020

Thanks for attending!

We hope you enjoyed the event yesterday. Keep an eye out for an update from us in the coming weeks on when you can view recordings from the day!

Skills and Ako Aotearoa have partnered to bring this year’s New Zealand Vocational Education and Training Research Forum (NZVETRF) to life on 12 November 2020.

In its 16th year, NZVETRF is the forum where experts discuss critical issues, share research, present evidence and inform policy makers about ‘what works’ in vocational education.

This year’s forum will be held in a virtual environment through Skills’ new event platform. This is a state-of-the-art event environment, which looks just like a real-life conference and lets participants pick and choose the speakers they want to listen to – as well as network in breakout sessions and networking lounges, with people from across the industry. To get a better idea of how the day is broken up, click our ‘Event Programme’ tab.

Keynote speakers include some big names in the VET community, including Dame Karen Poutasi, Professor Stephen Billett from Griffith University, Professor Leesa Wheelahan from the University of Toronto and Nazrene Mannie from the Global Apprenticeship Network (GAN Global).

​​​​​​​We look forward to seeing you there on the day.
