This research summary brings together the key findings from two research projects looking at the aspirations, intentions and choice of students considering vocational education and training. The research investigated student's post school career and education aspirations, the drivers influencing behaviour, awareness of vocational training options and career pathways, as well as how choices are made in a competitive training market.
