The Integrated Articulation and Credit Transfer (IACT) project was instigated in response to Australian Government efforts to address Australia's workforce and skills shortage issues by strengthening the connection between industry, the higher education (HE) sector and the vocational education and training (VET) sector.

Concern about the lack of connection, or 'articulation', between the VET and HE sectors has been expressed for some thirty years and arises from issues about access and equity, efficiency, views about the roles of the different sectors, and providing pathways between them.

The aim of the IACT project was to find ways to remove barriers to articulation between the VET and HE education sectors, and to assist VET, HE and industry stakeholders to improve the efficiency and effectiveness (or 'seamlessness') of articulation pathways for all stakeholders.

This report provides an overview of the project, its research findings and the resources which have been developed as a result.
