Australian Vocational Education and Training Statistics: The Likelihood of Completing a VET Qualification, 2005-08
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
The Australian vocational education and training (VET) system provides training across a wide range of subject areas and is delivered through a variety of training institutions and enterprises (including to apprentices and trainees). The system provides training for students of all ages and backgrounds. Students may study individual subjects or full courses that lead to formal qualifications. This publication estimates the qualification completion rates of publicly funded VET qualifications in Australia, in order to fill a gap in performance measures for the VET sector. For qualifications commencing in 2008: (1) The national estimated completion rate for VET enrolments at certificate I and above is 28.4%, and the subject load pass rate is 80.4%; (2) For students in full-time study aged 25 years and under with no previous post-school qualification, the national estimated qualification completion rate is 37.3% and the corresponding subject load pass rate is 77.5%; (3) Students enrolled in qualifications at certificate IV level (34.6%), certificate III level (33.5%) and diploma level and above (32.9%) have the highest estimated completion rates; (4) Full-time students aged 25 years and under with no previous post-school qualification enrolled in a certificate III have estimated completion rates of 45.9%; and (5) Enrolments in education (52.0%), society and culture (37.3%) and health (37.2%) have the highest estimated qualification completion rates. (Contains 6 tables and 4 notes.) [For related report, "The Likelihood of Completing a VET Qualification: A Model-Based Approach. Technical Paper," see ED511677.]
