Vocational Education and Training consultancy specialising in school-based VET
Mike Frost is one of the ‘true believers’ in the positive impact vocational education and training can have on young people still at school. From directing some of the earliest and most durable VET programs at Rosny College in Hobart, Tasmania, in the early 1990s Mike has gone on to be an enduring and influential voice in school-based VET. This has included leading the establishment of VET in school’s peak professional body, VETnetwork Australia, project managing the establishment of the former Tasmanian Qualifications Authority, leading reform legislation Guaranteeing Futures to
secure the successful transition of senior students from school to working life and driving the successful reform of the Tasmanian Certificate of Education to include VET in senior secondary certification.
Since establishing Mike Frost and Associates, a consultancy specialising in a range of services across VET but with a particular focus on school-based VET, in 2010 he has gone on to provide
policy advice, executive, evaluative and program review services for the Australian Government, the Tasmanian Government, the Australian Curriculum
Assessment and Certification Authorities (ACACA), the Australian Education Union and to VETnetwork Australia.
He has written extensively about VET
in Schools and was founding editor
for national publications The Vetnetworker and VOCAL. He has convened major conferences over many years for VETnetwork Australia, the Tasmanian Government, and more recently for the Australian Government’s School to Work section on Trade Training Centres.
