The Higher Education and Skills Group in the Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) is seeking to develop a deeper understanding of the most effective models to support disadvantaged learners to participate successfully in training that provides pathways into employment.The Department, through the VET Access and Equity Grants Program (the program), allocated funding to six programs in 2011-12 to develop and implement innovative service delivery models, featuring a partnership between a registered training organisation (RTO) and a community service organisation (CSO), to engage disadvantaged learners in VET.The Department commissioned the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER), in partnership with Monash University, to evaluate the six programs and an existing program, the Academy of Sport Health and Education (ASHE).
