The 2019 National Student Outcomes Survey, Australia’s largest survey of vocational education and training (VET) students, is set to commence tomorrow.
This year over 800 000 people who completed training in 2018 will be contacted, including international onshore VET graduates, to collect information on employment outcomes, training satisfaction, and the benefits and relevance of their training.
Managed by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER), the results of this survey help students make informed decisions about their training via the MySkills website, and help governments and training providers to plan, administer and monitor the VET system.
Apprentices and trainees will be contacted for their views and the outcomes of their training as part of their own specific survey.
The 2019 Apprentice and Trainee Experience and Destinations Survey, last conducted in 2010, will collect information on employment outcomes, reasons for non-completion, satisfaction with training, further study destinations, and on-the-job experiences of apprentices and trainees who completed or left their training in 2018.
Survey invitations will be sent to former students starting this week. VET graduates, subject completers, and former apprentices and trainees are urged to spare around 10-15 minutes to complete their survey if they are contacted.
Reports on the results of both surveys will be available at www.ncver.edu.au in late 2019.
