This handy, pocket-sized booklet summarises information from the National Centre for Vocational Education Research's (NCVER's) current statistical publications. It presents statistics about: Australia's public vocational education and training (VET) system (which includes activity undertaken at technical and further education [TAFE] institutes, other government providers, community education providers and publicly funded delivery by private providers); apprentices and trainees who are undertaking vocational training through a contract of training; expenditures and revenues of the public VET system; tertiary education and training; and young people's participation in education and training. Among the highlights: (1) There were 1.8 million students enrolled in the public VET system in 2010; (2) Around one in nine people aged 15 to 64 years participated in the publicly funded VET system in Australia in 2010; (3) As of December 2010, one in eight workers in the trades were employed as an apprentice or trainee; (4) 86.6% of graduates were employed or in further study approximately six months after their training in 2010; and (5) Total operating expenditures in Australia's public VET system was $7575.7 million in 2010.
