 The Mentoring Project

AVETRA is currently undertaking the Mentoring Project for NCVER to support new researchers in VET.  More information is provided by following the links below:
1.    A description of the Mentoring Project – Mentoring Project
2.  Section 1 of the Mentors Briefing Manual –Mentors Briefing Manual


AVETRA provides mentors to support new researchers as they participate in developing a workbased research project, and participating in a Community of Practice.  The scheme is sponsored by NCVER and involves two meetings at Victoria University, as well as work over the year of the project.  The photo above is of the 2013 Community of Practice new researchers at their May workshop.  If you are interested either as a new researcher or in being a mentor as an experienced researcher, contact us at AVETRA.

A similar scheme is run by UniSA and sponsored by NCVER to support new researchers undertaking higher degrees through research in the VET area.
