Employers’ use and views of the VET system 2015

By NCVER Statistical report 26 October 2015 ISSN 1835-467X


This survey collects information about employers' use and views of the vocational education and training (VET) system and the various ways employers use the VET system to meet their skill needs. Information collected is designed to measure employers' engagement and satisfaction with the VET system.

The 2015 survey data show that while employers' overall use of VET remains steady, the proportion of employers with apprentices and trainees continues to decline. Despite this decline, 81.7% of employers were satisfied that apprentices and trainees are receiving the skills they require through training, a similar proportion to 2013.
