National Centre for Vocational Education Research, Leabrook (Australia).
The 2000 Student Outcomes Survey was a national survey of students who undertook vocational education and training (VET) during 1999 at a technical and further education (TAFE) institute in Australia. Questionnaires mailed to stratified, randomly selected samples of graduates and module completers yielded national response levels of 55.8% and 51.5%, respectively. The following were among the main findings: (1) 89.2% of the TAFE graduates were employed or in further study after their course, and 76.0% were employed after their training; (2) 71.0% of TAFE module completers were employed after their training; (3) 66.7% of graduates and 62.8% of module completers rated the overall quality of their TAFE training as 8 or higher on a 10-point scale; (4) of those who were unemployed before their training, 49.8% of the TAFE graduates and 41.1% of the TAFE module completers found work after their training; (5) of those who were employed before their training, 21.9% of TAFE graduates and 13.1% of TAFE module completers moved to a higher skilled occupation after their training; and (6) for 26.0% of employed TAFE graduates, the job they held on May 26, 2000, was their first full-time job.
