VET for secondary school students: a research synthesis

By Michelle Circelli, Gitta Siekmann Research summary 30 March 2022 Revised: 2 September 2022 978-1-925717-97-6


The aim of this synthesis is to provide an overview of VET for secondary school students in Australia. The focus is on nationally recognised VET qualifications that contribute to a Senior Secondary Certificate of Education and not on the more general career education and work experience activities that constitute vocational learning. The paper focuses on reasons for choosing and participating in VET programs delivered in schools; models of delivery; quality of delivery; and outcomes, both short and medium-term, from these programs. Current knowledge gaps are identified with areas for further research suggested.
