Do outcomes differ for VET and higher education qualified workers in the same occupation? Carousel

Do outcomes differ for VET and higher education qualified workers in the same occupation?

Presented by Bridget Wibrow, NCVER and Dr Cain Polidano, University of Melbourne on Tuesday 20 September 2022.

This webinar is based on the report: VET and higher education pathways – do outcomes differ for the same occupation? which was released on 7 September.

Some occupations can be entered into with either a vocational education and training (VET) qualification or a higher education qualification, for example surveying, but are the outcomes the same for people who choose a VET pathway over higher education?

Using data from the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) Survey and interviews with employers in four occupations — childcare workers; surveyors; graphic designers; and medical laboratory technicians — this webinar explores whether these individuals are undertaking the same tasks and receiving the same job outcomes, such as salary and career pathways, as their higher education counterparts.

Making delivery better: perspectives from RTOs

Presented by Hugh Guthrie and Melinda Waters, with discussants Jenny Dodd and Andrew Shea and chaired by Tabatha Griffin, NCVER on Thursday 7 April 2022.

This webinar reviews the findings of the NCVER report - Delivering high-quality VET: what matters to RTOs.

RTOs come in many shapes and sizes with a wide variety of missions, courses and students. There are many aspects of quality delivery they all share in common (good is good!) despite some fundamental differences between RTO types (TAFEs, privates, community education and enterprise). What they also all have in common is needing to be able to measure quality effectively – how well they are doing things, both to help them improve and to convince others of how good they are.
