CVA journal

The bilingual CVA Journal has been published by the association for a number of years but is currently not being produced. It is the association’s intention to determine whether the journal should be re-established and whether this format is still appropriate or whether an electronic journal should be considered.

The CVA Journal was produced under the direction of a bilingual editorial committee and a professional editor and was supported for a number of years by the federal government. In its final years it was financed solely by the association. It was the only national bilingual journal produced to support best practice and research in the field of vocational education and acted also as a forum for a wide variety of emerging issues in the field. It is still used as a reference today with many libraries holding complete sets of all CVA journals ever produced.
