|A review of Victoria’s VET Sector
A review of Victoria’s vocational education has been prompted after fears of sector failing to train workers for future jobs. The review will examine ways to forge links between training institutes and industry to ensure courses produce more job-ready graduates
In 2014, there were 443,000 students enrolled in VET in Victoria. By 2018, the sector shed more than 177,000 students. Enrollments were lost for a range of reasons, including government decisions to cut funding to low-quality private education providers, and a society-wide shift towards university education.
