About the survey
The Survey of Employer Use and Views of the VET System collects information about employers' engagement and satisfaction with the VET system and the various ways employers use the VET system to meet their skill needs.
The survey covers training provided in the previous 12 months. The sample of employers is randomly selected from the ABS Business Register, and they are contacted using computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI). Approximately 8000 to 9000 employers are interviewed each survey.
Information is available at the national level, as well as disaggregated by industry, business size and state. The survey was first conducted in its current form in 2005.
