Full description

This dataset is one output of an ARC Discovery Project that investigated the impact of government reform and institutional restructuring in schools and technical and further education in Victoria in the 1990s. The project looked at the impact of the National Training Reform Agenda and Schools of the Future (Victoria) on teaching and managing in TAFE colleges and secondary schools. Chief investigators Terri Seddon and Lawrence Angus, assisted by Peter Rushbrook and Lynton Brown, designed a questionnaire to examine the changing relationship between education and training and, in particular, the changing nature of educational practice. From 1995-1996 data was collected from approximately 30 interviewees at a Victorian TAFE institute. Data from interviews was transcribed and analysed to provide a snapshot of issues such as: the demands of changing work practices; how managers lead educational reform; and the different responses of individual disciplines to competency based training and organisational development, including negotiation of resources as well as the treatment of different departments during the restructure process, with some privileged and others excluded. Analysis of the data illustrates some of the effects of the changing educational context on teachers and their work. It also provides a frame of reference for thinking about the implications of these kinds of contextual changes for teacher professionalism.
