Annual National Report of the Australian Vocational Education and Training System, 1999. Volume 3: Vocational Education & Training Performance.
Australian National Training Authority, Brisbane.
This three-volume report provides a comprehensive picture of the vocational education and training (VET) system in Australia, its key policies, initiatives undertaken, and achievements during 1999. This publication contains volume 3, which presents a detailed statistical report against the key performance measures for the VET system. Volumes 1 and 2 are combined in a single publication and available separately. This report has five sections. Part A, "At a Glance," provides an executive summary of the main findings in the report. Part B, "Introduction," considers the context of VET in Australia and sets the scene for measuring the performance of the system. Part C, "Key Performance Measures," reports performance against these eight key performance measures: skill outputs produced annually within the domain of formally recognized VET; stocks of VET skills against desired levels; employer views on VET; student outcomes from VET; VET participation, outputs, and outcomes achieved by client groups; public expenditure per publicly funded output; public expenditure per total recognized output; and total expenditure on VET. Part D, "Appendix," contains technical notes and details on specific issues that arise in relation to the use of data and to the application of calculations and adjustments necessary to make the data more comparable and consistent. Part E, "Glossary," defines terms. (YLB)
