- Publication Type:
- Issue Date:
The primary question of this research is; can creativity be accommodated in the competency system? A number of enquiries underpin consideration of this question. Two enquiries give background to the study. Firstly, consideration is given to the genesis of the competency system in the Australia socio-political context. Secondly, musical creativity is considered from the wider educational perspective in which Vocational Education and Training is situated. Thirdly, a literature enquiry investigates popular and scholarly domains to identify theories of creativity as a basis for better understanding creativity. Fourthly, conversations with six popular commercial music industry practitioners, working creative artists, artist managers and teachers in the popular commercial music industry, evoke direct experience and understanding of musical creativity in the context of the case study. Finally, specific competency items are measured against the findings of the preceding enquiries, that delineate creativity, to test the suitability of Competency Based Training learning and assessment materials to deal with creativity. These Competency Based Training items form the case study.
