Chief Executive Officer, VDC
The Australian Government recently announced reforms to the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA). As the national regulator for Australia’s VET sector, ASQA regulates training providers to ensure they meet nationally approved quality standards.
It’s data reporting season. Let’s take a look at what the total numbers of those taking a VET program are telling us.
How big is VET in 2018?
The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare is a major national agency whose purpose is to help improve the health and wellbeing of all Australians.
Their latest report: “Australia’s welfare 2019: in brief” has some useful insights on a wide range of topics.
Another article in this edition of VDC News focuses on total VET activity. This one looks specifically at VET in schools.
Over a five-year period, the number of school students undertaking vocational education and training has declined.
