VET students pass pre-covid levels – NCVER

Analysis and Commentary

In 2021, 4.3 million students were enrolled in nationally recognised VET courses, according to new figures from the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER).

This is the equivalent of 24.0 percent of the Australian resident population aged 15 to 64 years who participated in nationally recognised training in 2021.

The figure is also higher than pre-Covid levels which stood at 23.4 percent in 2019.

Queensland has the highest participation rate for VET students aged 15 to 64 years of 28.0 percent.

Participation was highest among those aged 15 to 19 years – at 44.6 percent – followed by those aged 20 to 24 years at 34.9 percent.

The number of students enrolled in programs in 2021 increased slightly compared to the previous year.

The number enrolled in shorter, stand-alone subjects has increased in 2021 to the highest number in the past five years.
