Overview

Research thesis title: An exploration of the organisational sustainability of CVPs in Australia's vocational education and training (VET) market.

Over the last number of years, a significant number of commercial for-profit VET provider (CVPs) – private providers, have ceased operations either voluntarily or involuntarily through cancellation by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) or insolvency. The impact of these closures has resulted in dramatic consequences including thousands of students being unable to finish their training and substantial losses of private and public funds To understand the underlying causes of these events, semi-structured interviews were conducted with eighteen individuals. Nine were from a Commercial for-profit VET Providers Not Trading (CVPNT), that were forced to close between 2016 and 2018, and nine from a Commercial for-profit VET Providers Trading (CVPT), that were accredited between 1996 to 2015 and are still operating.

This study examined the factors that, from a business, corporate governance, and pedagogical standpoint, contribute to the sustainability of a CVPs. Interviews were conducted with staff members from CVPs that had to close as well as CVPs that are still in business, to learn more about the factors that shaped and influenced these providers and the reasons why some CVPs failed while others flourished.

The proposed outcomes from this study are to contribute new knowledge and improve the professional practices of CVPs and advance on how they operate, how they train and how they become organisationally sustainable in their day-to-day operations to ensure success and viability, into the future.
