Retention to Year 12 and successful transition to work or further study have become a priority for all Australian Governments as is evidenced by the significant commitment being made by the Commonwealth and States and Territories through the National Partnership on Youth Attainment and Transitions. It is recognised that completion of Year 12 or an equivalent vocational qualification provides the sound foundation required to undertake further study or transition into employment. In late 2008, the Australian College of Educators (ACE) commissioned the Work-based Education Research Centre at Victoria University to undertake a research project entitled Enhancing retention of young people to year 12, especially through vocational skills.
