Glossary of VET

24 July 2013


The language of vocational education and training (VET) is complex and particularly prone to jargon and acronyms. The aim of this glossary is to provide a single up-to-date reference source for definitions of Australian VET-related terms, acronyms and organisations.

The glossary contains:

  • VET terms and concepts, including adult and continuing education and lifelong learning
  • Australian VET organisations and some key international VET organisations
  • key Australian historical VET documents
  • VET-related acronyms.

The glossary excludes:

  • terms which are in general use and for which the meaning is obvious
  • international terms and concepts.

Each entry in the glossary includes:

  • the term
  • its definition
  • cross references to related terms.
