AbstractThe Youth Research Life Pattern Project is a progressive longitudinal analysis of Victorian students' life experiences, aspirations and expectations for the future. The aim of this study was to identify barriers to participation in, and effective delivery of, programs in vocational education and training. The original database included 29,155 Victorian students who were planning to finish schooling in 1991. These participants were resurveyed a year later. In 1995, a matched sample of participants who were representive of the original set were contacted and completed a detailed survey to provide an up-date on their progress. Annual surveys were also completed in 1996, 1997 and 1998. Variables include work and study involvement, area of study, stage of study, current employment, lifetime goals, future career aspirations, and attitude towards education and the different education pathways. Background variables include sex, living situations, social background,and disabilities.
