Australian Vocational Education and Training Statistics: Completion and Attrition Rates for Apprentices and Trainees, 2010
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
By tracking the outcome of a contract of training over time, individuals can measure contract completion and attrition rates. This method requires enough time to pass to accurately report on outcomes for the majority of contracts. This publication presents completion and attrition rates for apprentices and trainees using three different methodologies: (1) contract completion and attrition rates--based on the outcomes of contracts of training; (2) individual completion rates--uses contract completion rates and adjusts this figure, based on average recommencement data; and (3) projected contract completion and attrition rates for the latest commencing apprentice and trainee cohorts, based on a "life tables" methodology. (Contains 9 tables and 13 notes.)
