Equity Groups in Total VET Students and Courses 2014: Australian Vocational Education and Training Statistics
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
This publication provides summary information on equity groups in vocational education and training (VET) delivered by 4601 Australian providers in 2014, under the first collection of "total VET activity" data. In 2014, there were: (1) 146,500 Indigenous students (3.7% of all students); (2) 201,000 students with a disability (5.1% of all students); (3) 527,100 students from a non-English speaking background (13.5% of all students); (4) 558,100 students from rural/remote localities (14.3% of all students); The subject load pass rate for all students was 83.4% in 2014, compared with: (5) 74.4% for Indigenous students; (6) 74.6% for students with a disability; (7) 80.7% for students from a non-English speaking background; and(8) 85.6% for students from rural/remote localities. It is important to note that 2014 is a transition year in which a number of training providers were granted exemption from reporting and others did not report their training activity. The coverage and completeness of the data should improve over time once reporting exemptions are removed and training providers adapt to mandatory reporting requirements.
