The Journal of Vocational, Adult and Continuing Education and Training could not have become a reality without the commitment of a number of individuals and organisations who provided support at critical stages of its development.   We are grateful for the vision of the University of the Western Cape Faculty of Education, especially that of the former Dean of Education, Prof. Zubeida Desai, for her enthusiasm for this venture.   We thank the Education Policy Consortium (EPC) for its initial seed funding grant which enabled the scoping research and the journal development workshop in 2016.   The encouragement of members of the Department of Higher Education and Training in the early phase of conceptualisation of the journal is gratefully acknowledged.   Our appreciation also goes to the MerSETA for their strategic partnership in this initiative and for making a consistent contributution towards developing TVET scholarship.   The publication of this issue of the journal has been made possible by the Teaching and Learning Development Capacity Improvement Programme which is being implemented through a partnership between the Department of Higher Education and Training and the European Union.   We are enormously grateful to our colleagues across the spectrum of post-school provision, who offered helpful advice as the journal processes unfolded.   Thank you to the authors who allowed us to subject their work to scrutiny and for being willing to publish in the JOVACET.   Our reviewers, who gave so generously of their time and talent, deserve a special word of thanks.   Thank you to our Editorial Committee and Advisory Board – we look forward to your continued participation and support.
