New theme page released

The edna VET team is committed to pulling together  resources  into theme pages that are interesting and relevant to you.  Currently there are 16 themes on Teaching and Learning in VET and 17 themes on Business and Industry The latest one is the last of the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classifications (ANZIC) 2006 and has been entitled ‘Other services’. What are ‘Other services?’ I hear you ask.

Well, according to ANZLIC  they are fairly varied including autobody repairs, hairdressing, beauty therapy, and funeral services.  The theme page picks up on the fact that many of these occupations are related to personal care but also draws repairing and maintaining equipment and machinery (with some exceptions) into its ambit.

A nice aspect of this page is that it includes some young people who are part of the 2009 Australian Skillaroos team that has gone over to Calvary to compete – check out the Twitter feed. Lots of discussion happening and you can get an RSS feed to save you having to travel to the website for news every day. Thanks to WorldSkills Australia for using web 2.0 tools to create a rich picture of what is happening over there in Calgary for the 40th International WorldSkills Competition.
