Paul Boys works to improve access and equity for young people in education through the promotion of the valuable role that Vocational Education and Training (VET) plays in the development of careers and pathways as connected to secondary and post-secondary education.
With over 20 years-experience in education, Paul has built his career around looking to innovate and develop new approaches that allow for more inclusive policies and practices which support the retention of students to a successful year 12 completion.
Paul is a 2016 Churchill Fellow who found that VET within secondary schools in the Unites States of America (USA) and Canada sought to offer flexible and targeted strategies that actively worked to improve student retention and engagement with applied learning whilst at school and post-school completion.
Since returning from his Fellowship, Paul has presented to a number of conferences on the findings from his research and he is now enrolled in a PhD with Deakin University to further develop the research that he undertook as part of his Churchill Fellowship. Paul has received an ISS Fellowship in 2014 and 2020 and he continues to support the research of student engagement in the Australian and international VET sectors. Paul holds a Masters of Business, Masters of Professional Education and Training and a Bachelor of Social Sciences (Honours).
