The National Centre for Vocational Education Research has published a statistical report which summarises data relating to students, programs, subjects and training providers in Australia’s government-funded vocational education and training (VET) system.

Highlights from the report are as follows:

In the first three months to 31 March 2021, 748,500 students were enrolled in government-funded vocational education and training (VET).  Some students enrolled in one or more programs, others in stand-alone subjects, and some in a combination of both.

They included:

  • 735,800 students enrolled in nationally recognised training
  • 27,500 students enrolled in non-nationally recognised training.

Government-funded program enrolments comprised:

  • 93.4% in nationally recognised programs
  • 4.1% in locally developed programs
  • 2.5% in non-nationally recognised programs.

89.5% of program enrolments were in qualifications:

  • 81.7% of program enrolments were in training package qualifications
  • 7.8% were in accredited qualifications
  • 48.4% of qualifications were at certificate III level
  • 20.4% of qualifications were at certificate IV level

The report provides a summary of data on domestic government-funded vocational education and training (VET) activity delivered in Australia. It contains information on students, programs, subjects and training providers. 

Data is presented for Australia and by the state or territory that administered the funding of the training activity. 

Data is sourced from the National VET Provider Collection, which is compiled under the Australian Vocational Education and Training Management Information Statistical Standard (AVETMISS).
