Government-Funded Students and Courses: January to June 2015
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
This report provides a summary of data relating to students, programs, training providers and funding in Australia's government-funded vocational education and training (VET) system (broadly defined as all activity delivered by government providers and government-funded activity delivered by community education and private training providers). The data in this publication cover the period 1 January 2015 to 30 June 2015. In the six months from 1 January to 30 June 2015 there were 1.07 million students enrolled in the government-funded VET system, of which: (1) 63.4% were attending TAFE and other government providers, (2) 38.1% were aged 25 to 44 years; (3) 88.2% were enrolled in an Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) level program; (4) 37.2% were studying certificate III programs; and (5) 17.5% were enrolled in engineering and related technologies. A total of 1828 training organisations delivered training during this period. As this is the first year that government-funded VET data have been collected and reported on a quarterly basis, caution must be used when interpreting data from these initial data collections.
