Worldwide, the current trend in education favours teaching practices that incorporate approaches designed to deliver industry-ready graduates to the labour market. In following this trend, therefore, current industry practices and the study of the latest industrial processes gain increased prominence. In the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector in Australia, one approach has been to encourage industry placements for VET teachers, as part of a wider agenda to broaden teaching skills, develop networks, and connect the classroom learning activities to industrial processes.
