The study was funded by NCVER and undertaken by George Myconos of the Brotherhood of St Laurence and research partners Kira Clarke from Melbourne University and Kitty Te Riele from Victoria University. Some 130 private RTOs were surveyed about their perspectives on teaching and learning practices, engaging with early school leavers, and educational and wellbeing support services.
