The Australian Vocational Education and Training Research Association (AVETRA) aims to promote quality VET research, build capacity to undertake VET research and evaluation, and provide opportunities to exchange information and ideas. VET research may be on a small or large scale, for policy development, to improve teaching and assessment practices or to discover which partnerships, programs and services best meet the needs of the individuals, communities and enterprises. AVETRA members include TAFE and university-based researchers, training managers, industry-based trainers and managers, and VET decision-makers. The annual conference aims to be informative, challenging and practical and assist people to build networks.

VET research in Australia has traditionally focussed on the challenges of the present. For the 2011 conference, researchers have been asked to address the lessons of history and challenges of the future as well as the pressing concerns of the present. Conference themes include pedagogies and pathways, learning from our VET past, the work of VET and its workforce, issues around learner success and skilling for sustainable future.
