Delivery of VET: emerging trends in response to the COVID-19 pandemic

By Sheila Hume, Tabatha Griffin Research summary 1 December 2022 978-1-922801-04-3


This interactive publication contributes to the growing body of work investigating online and blended training delivery in vocational education and training (VET). It presents the delivery mode of subject-level enrolments in VET for 2019 (pre-pandemic), 2020 and 2021. The aim is to examine whether, and how, training delivery has changed during the pandemic. In addition to overall subject-level enrolment figures, the publication presents delivery mode by jurisdiction, funding source, training provider type, Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) level and student remoteness. The data are sourced from NCVER’s Total VET Activity (TVA) collection.
