This item consists of four separate documents covering various aspects of Australian Vocational Education and Training (VET) statistics. The first two documents, "Statistics 1996: Women at a Glance" and "Statistics 1996: Young People at a Glance," provide summary information about women and young people (15- to 24-year-olds) who undertook public funded VET in Australia in 1996. In the third document, "Statistics 1997: At a Glance," summary information about Australia's publicly funded VET sector in 1997 is presented. The fourth document,"Contract of Training Annual Statistics, 1 July 1996 to 30 June 1997" is an overview of national data related to contracts of training (including apprenticeships and traineeships) and current trends in the VET sector. The 61 tables included in the 4 documents present a wide range of facts, including the following: the nearly 630,000 women who undertook VET in 1996 represented 47.5% of Australia's VET clients; each woman spent an average of 210 hours in VET programs, with young women averaging more hours than their male counterparts (335 and 284 hours, respectively); young people represented 37.5% of VET clients in 1996, and they spent an average of 309 hours in VET programs each; in the 10 years from 1988 to 1997, the number of clients in VET increased by 53%.; and in 1996-1997, the number of clients in contracts of training was up 10.9% from the previous year.
