Encourage your students to participate in the National Student Outcomes Survey and follow its progress. The survey is used to collect data on VET students’ training satisfaction, employment outcomes and whether they’ve gone onto further study. By helping to promote this survey, you will ensure that more data is collected, increasing the quality of any findings. These findings help you and the whole sector improve.
The Australian Government’s review of the VET sector is currently accepting public submissions until the 25th January.
The review aims to find how the government’s investment in VET could be more effective. This will ensure that Australians have the skills they need to have a successful working life.

According to research conducted by Flinders University, almost 50% of Australian senior secondary students participate in VET in schools (VETis) in some way. The research suggests that people who undertake school-based traineeships have higher completion rates than those who complete post-school traineeships, especially females.
