Abstract or Summary

In this article, we report on how we used a repertory ratings grid to triangulate a vocational tutor’s and her learners’ meaning-making on a pre-apprenticeship hairdressing course in the tertiary sector. We devised and administered a group repertory grid to elicit learners’ constructs-based ratings of seven elements whose focus of convenience was “effective industry-directed and employability-promoting hairdressing training practices”. Finally, we performed two sets of analyses: the first, to show how the constructs-based ratings were configured; and the second, to explore how the elements in the grid were associated within the grid data.
