Firstly an apology - the audio quality in this episode is a little bit scratchy towards the beginning of the interview with Janelle BUT fortunately not from Janelle's end - so she's crystal clear!In this interview Claire discusses the international education sector with Janelle Chapman, Executive Director, TAFE Queensland International. Janelle is currently the Deputy Chair of the International Education Association of Australia and the VET Expert on the Council for International Education. Janelle has a long-term view on international education which is insightful and refreshing - especially as the sector (and the broader community) battles the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic. ---------------------------------------------The ‘What now?

Dr Don Zoellner, University Fellow at Charles Darwin University, discusses why we should be looking at the role of TAFE and the broader VET sector through the theories of 'delivering public value' and 'institutional logics'. That might sound like a dry topic for a podcast but let me assure it wasn't at all that kind of conversation. With a range of policymakers now identifying flaws in the way the market has been used as a funding construct for VET - I believe Don's views are likely to gain traction.If you care about how VET is funded, the role of the public provider and where private providers can/should sit in a broader view of the role of VET - then do take the time to have a listen. In the podcast Don refers to a paper which he drew on in his presentation to the 2019 TAFE Directors Australia conference. If you would like a copy - please get in touch with either Don or Claire.--------------------------------------The ‘What now?
