dc.description.abstract While most studies on learning communities have focused on rural or remote regional areas, this paper outlines recent research focussed on learning communities in urban areas’. The study was undertaken by the Research Centre for Vocational Education and Training (RCVET now OVAL Research) at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS). Four urban communities identified as experiencing a high level of disadvantage were selected from each of four Australian states. In each of the four communities Vocational Education and Training (VET) providers had been involved in a learning partnership within that community. The study focussed on the participation of VET providers in responding to disadvantage in urban communities while specifically examining how the equity strategies of VET providers are incorporated in approaches to community capacity in urban areas. An objective of the study was to link into emerging policy interest in expanding lifelong learning potential through the development of ‘learning communities’. While a brief outline of the research process and references to the final integrating report are included this paper concentrates on the four case studies and the emerging themes. en_US
