VET courses produce job-ready graduates with the skills businesses want.
Despite university enrolments rising, the number of university graduates in full-time employment after graduation continues to fall. In contrast, VET graduates are experiencing higher employment rates than their university peers.
This is because employers all over Australia hold VET qualifications in high regard. They know our graduates have completed a structured program designed by industry experts that has coached them through the skills employers want.
VET qualifications are available in all occupations that are reporting a shortage of labour. VET can equip school leavers with the experience, skills, specialist qualifications, and licenses necessary to meet this skills demand. And there are VET courses for nine out of the ten occupations predicted to have the greatest new job growth over the next five years.
