VET student outcomes 2017 summary findings

21 November 2017 This data is part of the Student outcomes collection


This product presents the tables from the publication VET student outcomes 2017, in Excel format. The margin of error, at a 95% confidence level, is presented for all survey estimates.

The findings relate to students who completed their vocational education and training (VET) in Australia during 2016, using data collected in mid-2017. The outcomes are reported for students in receipt of Commonwealth or state funding and those who paid for their training by other means. The figures are derived from the National Student Outcomes Survey, which is an annual survey of  students awarded a qualification (graduates), or who successfully complete part of a course and then leave the VET system (subject completers).

Information is presented on students’ reasons for training, their employment outcomes, further study outcomes and satisfaction with training. Data on the main reason for not continuing with the training are available for subject completers.
