National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
This publication provides a summary of 2013 data relating to students, courses, qualifications, training providers and funding in Australia's publicly funded vocational education and training (VET) system. The Australian 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 have many options for training and may study individual subjects or full courses that lead to formal qualifications. Training takes place in classrooms, in the workplace, online and through other flexible delivery methods. Providers of vocational education and training in Australia include technical and further education (TAFE) institutes, universities, secondary schools, industry organisations, private enterprises, agricultural colleges, community education providers and other government providers. Funding is provided by the Australian Government, state and territory governments, industry bodies, employers and individual students, through fees.
