The Socio-Economic Status of Vocational Education and Training Students in Australia
Foley, Paul
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
This report examines the relationship between socio-economic status and participation in the vocational education and training (VET) sector. Research indicates that students from low socio-economic status areas are over-represented in the VET sector; it also shows that VET students from these areas complete qualifications at a better-than-average rate. (Contains 7 figures and 3 tables.) [This work has been produced with funding provided through the Australian Department of Education, Science and Training.]
