Vocational Training in Australia

Within Australia’s Vocational Education and Training (VET) facilities, students gain valuable, career-focused skills that are sought by employers. Vocational Education and Training institutions offer practical courses in both real and simulated work environments in subjects such as business, tourism, marketing, computing, and hospitality.

Vocational training is offered by Technical and Further Education (TAFE) Institutes, private colleges, and many other schools and universities. The educational curriculum of this training is developed by the government and industry together, and combines lectures and tutorials in small classes. In the VET sector, assessment is determined through assignments, attendance, class participation, practical skills tests, and exams.

Upon completion of vocational training in Australia, students are awarded a Certificate or Diploma. Students who complete a vocational education may choose to either enroll in a university education program or search for a job.
