Abstract:

This report documents research undertaken on patterns of access, participation and outcomes in relation to vocational education and training in Australia. Major gains have been made over the past decade in the numbers of young people participating in school-based and post-school vocational education and training. It is important therefore to examine whether the growth in participation has been evenly spread, whether it has helped to improve the labour market outcomes for participants and whether the gains have enhanced transitions from school to work. Data to address these issues were derived from major longitudinal surveys (the Australian youth survey, the Australian longitudinal survey and Youth in transition), and young Australians were interviewed annually on their school experiences, post-school education and training participation and work activities. Key findings are given.
