Total VET Students and Courses 2014: Australian Vocational Education and Training Statistics
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
In November 2012, the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Standing Council on Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment (SCOTESE) agreed to the introduction of mandatory reporting of nationally recognised training activity from 2014 onward. Under the mandatory reporting requirements, all Australian providers (excluding those exempted by regulators) delivering nationally recognised training to students, either in domestic or in overseas locations, must report information about these students and their training. This publication provides, for the first time, an estimate of the extent and nature of all accredited vocational education and training (VET) delivered in 2014 by Australian training providers. This picture of training activity reflects the information collected from all types of providers (including those not in receipt of Commonwealth or state funding). Information is provided on the number of training providers, students, enrolments in programs, enrolments in subjects, hours of delivery, and program completions. The data was gathered from 4,601 Australian providers. COAG SCOTESE expects coverage and completeness of the data to improve over time once reporting exemptions are removed and training providers adapt to the mandatory reporting requirements.
