This publication presents information on VET in Schools, the vocational education and training (VET) undertaken by school students as part of their senior secondary certificate of education. The VET in Schools arrangement offers two main options: students can undertake school-based apprenticeships and traineeships; or they can take VET subjects and courses as part of their school curriculum (the latter is referred to as ‘other VET in Schools programs’).
In 2017, there were:
- 242 100 VET in Schools students
- 20 000 school-based apprentices and trainees, representing 8.2% of all VET in Schools students
- 222 200 students undertaking other VET in Schools programs, representing 91.8% of all VET in Schools students.
In 2017, compared with 2016:
- the overall number of VET in Schools students decreased by 0.5%
- school-based apprentices and trainees increased by 16.1%
- students undertaking other VET in Schools programs decreased by 1.7%.
