VET for the stayers  

The Productivity Commission states, high/increasing proportions of people working in their VET qualified field, or where their highest qual is relevant to their job “is desirable”

On which basis VET is going ok. The Commission’s new report on government services puts the combined figure for the two categories in 2018-19 at 79.8 per cent for 15 – 64 year olds who completed training in the last five years, largely in line with previous surveys over a decade.

Maybe not the message advocates of skill, skill and skill again will want workers to get.  But it’s a solid sell for people who like the idea of acquiring skills and sticking with them, rather than having to regularly reinvent their working selves.
