What is Vocational Education and Training (VET)?
Vocational education and training (VET) enables students to gain qualifications for all types of employment, and specific skills to help them in the workplace. Vocational education and training is provided through a network of eight state and territory governments and the Australian Government, along with industry, public and private training providers. These organisations work together to provide nationally consistent training across Australia. The VET sector is crucial to the Australian economy; both for the development of the national workforce and as a major export industry.
What is a Nationally Recognised Qualification?
Nationally recognised training leads to vocational qualifications and credentials that are recognised across Australia. Only registered training organisations (RTO) can issue nationally recognised qualifications. RTOs are recognised as providers of quality-assured and nationally recognised training and qualifications
Nationally recognised training courses are listed on training.gov.au.
What is the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA)?
ASQA is the national regulator for Australia’s vocational education and training (VET) sector. ASQA regulates courses and training providers to ensure nationally approved quality standards are met.
