About the conference
In 2021, we celebrated 30 years of the National Vocational Education and Training (VET) Research Conference ‘No Frills’. The conference was hosted online for the second time.
The theme Past informing the future asked presenters to consider how VET’s past might inform its future and to reflect on the lessons and achievements that have the potential to inform progress.
