The VPRN Network
A key objective of the VPRN is to encourage existing and new VET practitioners to engage in existing organisations and structures rather than build a new one. The VPRN is one means of building the overall level of engagement in and with quality VET practitioner research.
There are clearly opportunities to build capacity through encouraging a renewed community of practice led by the practitioners themselves – and driven by a shared interest in showcasing their work with their peers. This could be achieved through the submission and sharing of their own research (small ‘r’) to a wider community of VET practitioners in ways which bring a voice and visibility to their work – so that they may name it and claim it as their own.
