Long overdue VET intel

It’s nearly a decade since the last apprentice and trainee experience and destinations survey 

The apprentice and trainee experience and destinations survey is underway, conducted by the estimable National Centre for Vocational Education Research. It covers employment outcomes, reasons for non-completion, satisfaction with training, further study destinations, and on-the-job experiences of apprentices and trainees who completed or left their training in 2018.

Good-oh, with VET said to be seen by many young people as inferior to higher education in job-generating, the more consumer intel the better. And it’s not as if information will be incremental – the last survey was in 2010, which means many, many victims of the VET FEE HELP catastrophe will not have their opinions recorded.

The NCVER’s 2018  student outcomes survey, which covers graduates and subject completers is also underway.
