Just back from the Launch Conference of the Journal of Vocational and Continuing Training, which was initiated by Professor Joy Papier, from the Institute of Post-School Studies of the Western Cape University, Cape Town, South Africa. I could only participate in the first day of the conference, but the speakers list was impressive, as is the intended list of members of the Editorial Board. The field of Vocational Education and Training research was missing an academic journal in the field from the African content, and because the scope of the journal will be pan-African, it will be a valuable asset for the field.
