Flexible Learning Leaders
The Flexible Learning Leaders Project was an initiative of the Australian Flexible Learning Framework for VET 2000-2004, which aimed to support the vocational education and training system to meet the rapidly increasing demand for flexible learning, including e-learning, from industry, enterprise and clients. The project concluded in 2004.
This website contains material produced between 2000 and March 2005.
Over five years the Flexible Learning Leaders Project provided funding and support for 194 professionals to develop the knowledge, skills and leadership to expand flexible learning in vocational education and training - that is, to expand choices on what, when, where and how people learn. The project established a national network of experts in flexible learning, comprising managers, practitioners, specialists, and representatives from enterprises, public and private RTOs, advisory bodies, and industry.
