Vocational Education Training Australia
Australia's VET system
Australia's national Vocational Education Training System (VET) is tailored to meet the needs of industry. The courses offered are industry focussed and designed to meet the needs of employers. The courses offered are nationally accredited and of a generally high standard.
The Commonwealth government has identified VET as a priortiy in education, especially secondary education for students who are not suited to mainstream learning and who wish to acquire practical skills and enter the workforce with full confidence.
From 1 July, the responsibilities of the Australian National Training Authority (ANTA) became vested in the Department of Education, Science & Training (DEST).
