Advancing equity : merging 'bottom up' initiatives with 'top down' strategies

Clayton, Berwyn, Figgis, Jane, Butorac, Anne, Dave, Meyers, Dickie, Mary, Malley, Jeff and McDonald, Rod (2007) Advancing equity : merging 'bottom up' initiatives with 'top down' strategies. Project Report. National Centre for Vocational Education Research NCVER.


The purpose of this study was to identify the factors which help successful equity initiatives that had been seeded in TAFE institutes through short-term funding to take root and spread. The report concludes that many equity programs remain stuck in the seeding stage and fail to thrive and grow. It suggests that this is because current funding approaches place too much emphasis on starting initiatives and not enough on the development and scale-up of promising ones.
