Total VET students and courses

NCVER Collection

About this collection

About Infographic

The purpose of the National VET Provider Collection is to provide data on training, including nationally recognised training and recognition of prior learning, reported to a nationally agreed standard, from government-funded and privately operated training providers.

The Total VET students and courses publication provides an estimate on the nature and extent of vocational education and training (VET) delivered by Australian training providers in domestic and overseas locations. It presents national information about students and participation, courses and qualifications, module/unit of competency enrolments, and hours of delivery.

Further breakdowns of the data are available as Excel files. For more information regarding the collection please refer to VET statistics explained.
