Total VET students and courses

NCVER Collection

Introduction

Presented here is an estimate of the extent and nature of vocational education and training (VET) delivered by Australian training providers. This picture of training activity is known as ‘total VET activity’ (TVA), to reflect that the information is collected from all types of training providers.

Total VET activity scope

Information is provided on the number of training providers, students, program enrolments, subject enrolments, hours of delivery and program completions.

TVA data are sourced from both the National VET Provider Collection and National VET in Schools Collection. These collections are compiled under the Australian Vocational Education and Training Management Information Statistical Standard (AVETMISS).
