Shedding light: private ‘for profit’ training providers and young early school leavers

George Myconos. Kira Clarke and Kitty te Riele

How do private providers respond to the challenge of delivering training to a particular cohort of learners, 15 to 19-year-olds who have left school early?

The study was funded by NCVER and undertaken by George Myconos of the Brotherhood of St. Laurence and research partners Kira Clarke from the University of Melbourne 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.
