Young People in Education and Training 2017. Australian Vocational Education and Training Statistics
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
The Australian education and training system offers a range of education options for young people. This publication provides a summary of statistics relating to young people aged 15 to 19 years who participated in education and training during 2017. Information on participation is presented for school students, VET in Schools students, higher education students, apprenticeship and traineeship commencements, and vocational education and training (VET) students. A snapshot as at August 2017 shows there were 1.5 million Australians aged 15 to 19 years, of which an estimated 82.8% participated in education and training. Table 1 provides an estimate of participation in education and training by Australians aged 15 to 19-years at a point in time--as at August 2017, with duplicate students removed through the assignment of an 'activity' based on a hierarchy. The sectoral tables (tables 2 to 12) provide statistics on the different types of education and training undertaken by all young people (both domestic and international students) during a calendar year. Tables 9 and 10 provide an estimate of the extent and nature of all VET activity undertaken by young people from 2015 to 2017. Tables 11 and 12 present data for government-funded VET activity undertaken by young people from 2013 to 2017. This activity is broadly defined as all Commonwealth and state/territory government-funded training. [For "Young People in Education and Training 2016.
