VET is well received by students and employers

25-Mar-2014

Each year the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) conducts a Student Outcomes Survey.

This sheds light on Australia's vocational education and training (VET) courses and provides insight into the lives of those who undertake apprenticeships and traineeships.

Sue Fergusson, general manager of research at the NCVER, revealed that 87 per cent of those who contributed to the 2013 Student Outcomes Survey admitted they were "satisfied with the overall quality of their training".

This figure is not surprising given that the survey demonstrates VET courses go a long way toward helping people find gainful employment. Out of the 75,000 students who took part in the survey, 78.2 per cent had been granted a job after finishing their course. 32.9 per cent of people found employment in the same occupation in which they completed their training course.

In addition to this, 34.4 per cent said they were hired to fill a different position but felt the skills and knowledge they had achieved as part of the VET course they participated in were relevant to their current job.

When it comes to wages, those who graduate from VET courses and begin full-time work earn - on average - $56,700 per annum. This compares favourably with the average employee in Australia who earns $51,923 each year.

If you're interested in finding an apprenticeship or traineeship or taking on an apprentice or trainee then get in touch with a Group Training Organisation today.
