Work-based Education Research Centre (WERC)

We are a research and development centre that investigates how learning takes place in, through and for the workplace.

Our activities contribute to knowledge and policy development in Vocational Education Training (VET) at Victoria University (VU).

The Centre performs the five major functions:

  • research and consultancy
  • developing innovative products and processes
  • capacity building
  • publishing
  • networking

These provide the framework for strategic planning, and ensure our core business fits with the University's mission of applying research to the real world.
