dc.descriptionThis is a post print of a paper from Student equity in higher education : what we know, what we need to know : forum proceedings 2009 published by National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education. http://www.unisa.edu.au/hawkeinstitute/ncsehe/default.aspen_US
dc.description.abstractThis paper addresses three questions: the first question explores the extent to which VET diplomas and advanced diplomas provide students with an educational ladder of opportunity. The second question explores the extent to which VET pathways provide students from low socio-economic backgrounds with access to higher education and thus provides a social ladder of opportunity. The third question explores the institutional destinations of VET students from low socio-economic backgrounds in higher education. The paper concludes by examining the implications for policy. Overall, the findings are that pathways from VET to higher education provide access to universities, but not to the elite universities. It also finds that VET pathways are not a mechanism for redressing socio-economic disadvantage in higher education more broadly, because the socio-economic profile of VET articulators is very similar to students already in higher education and within individual universities, with a few notable exceptions.en_US
