Australian Vocational Education and Training Statistics: Young People in Education and Training 2014
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
The Australian education and training system offers a range of options for young people. This publication provides a summary of the statistics relating to young people aged 15 to 19 years who participated in an education and training activity during 2014. Information on participation is presented for school students, VET in Schools students, higher education students, apprentices and trainees, and vocational education and training (VET) students. Table 1 provides an estimate of participation in education and training in Australia by 15 to 19-year-olds as at August 2014. The sectoral tables (tables 2 to 11) provide statistics on all education and training activities undertaken by young people from 2010 to 2014. Table 9 provides, for the first time, an estimate of the extent and nature of all accredited VET delivered by Australian training providers. This picture of training activity, otherwise known as "total VET activity", is only available for 2014 activity. Tables 10 and 11 present data for government-funded VET (broadly defined as all activity delivered by government providers and government-funded activity delivered by community education and private training providers) undertaken by young people from 2010 to 2014. Refer to the explanatory notes on pages 22-27 for further information on the sectoral tables and methodology used to estimate education and training participation, as shown in table 1. A glossary of terms, and explanatory notes are also provided.
