Synopsis

Australia is a diverse nation with at least a third of us born overseas. However, individuals from migrant backgrounds—particularly those who have arrived in the last four years (newly arrived) — are disadvantaged and face barriers which lead to poorer education outcomes. In Australia there is a dire shortage of qualified and experience vocational educators. The research conducted through this Fellowship sheds light on the barriers and facilitators that skilled migrants may face to pursue a career as vocational educators.
