VET - What is it?


Vocational education and training is ‘education and training for work’. It exists to develop and recognise the competencies or skills of learners.

It has traditionally been seen as post-secondary, non-university education and training, focusing on apprenticeships. But reforms in the past decade now see vocational education and training programs offered in secondary schools, stronger links with university study options and six levels of qualifications offered in most industries, including high growth, new economy industries.

Providers of learning and assessment services are registered by the system and regularly audited for service quality. The system enables providers to operate anywhere in Australia, and to issue nationally-recognised qualifications. In May 2001, there were over 4000 registered training organisations, including TAFE institutes, private training and assessment organisations, enterprises, universities, schools and adult education providers.

System clients are the learners themselves (students, apprentices, trainees and retrainees) and their employers.

Training Packages provide the central system ‘architecture’. Training Packages specify the competencies that must result from the provision of learning services, industry requirements for assessment, and the qualifications that result from competence. In industry areas where there are not yet Training Packages, accredited courses are used instead.

Industry - vocational education and training in Australia is an industry-led system, through the leadership of an industry ANTA Board and through the development of industry-recognised Training Packages by representative bodies.

Australian Government, state and territory governments - the ANTA Agreement brings together Australian Government, and state and territory governments to provide the policy and regulatory frameworks for the VET system. Governments implement the National Training Framework (which includes Training Packages and the National Quality Training Framework) to enable consistency, quality and national recognition of provider services. Governments also provide approximately half the funds for the system - the other half being provided by enterprises and learners themselves.

History of VET


Vocational education and training (VET) in Australia had its roots in the mid to late nineteenth century with the establishment of mechanics’ institutes, schools of mines and technical and working men’s colleges to develop the skills of Australia’s working population. For almost 100 years, training and institutions were largely concentrated around males working fulltime in a fairly narrow band of trade related industries.

In the 1960s and 70s…
Industry and society started to change. The traditional manufacturing, mining and agricultural industries started to decline in economic significance and new industries, like communications and finance, were emerging. More women entered or re-entered education and the workforce. The 1974 Kangan Report on Needs in Technical and Further Education defined the roles and the mission of what is now known as the TAFE system. Training began to change with more preparatory and pre-vocational training and slowing growth in the traditional heartland of trade and technical training.

Into the 1980s…
The services industries continued to expand at the expense of the mining, manufacturing and construction industries --- TAFE’s traditional territory. Networks of private training providers, largely providing training to service industries, were also emerging. A number of reports pointed to the need for the training system to be driven by the needs of the individual and industry so the economy as a whole could prosper.

In the early 90s…
The Deveson (Training Costs of Award Restructuring), Finn (Young People’s Participation in Post-Compulsory Education and Training) and Carmichael Reports looked at expanding training systems, increasing young people’s participation in training and a consolidated national system. Consensus developed across Australia that substantial reform and a unified national effort was required.

In 1992…
All states, territories and the Australian Government agreed to the establishment of ANTA and a co-operative federal system of vocational education and training with strategic input by industry.

In 1994…
The Fitzgerald Report into the implementation of the national system led to some of the current elements of today’s VET system, including concepts of best practice and user choice, states and territories taking responsibility for accreditation and standards endorsement and a stronger and more coherent industry training advisory structure.

The late 90s……
This period saw the introduction of New Apprenticeships, the establishment of the National Training Framework, the introduction of VET in schools and the development of Training Packages.

In 2000 and beyond…
The national VET system continues to respond to industry, individual and community needs, focusing on capturing the best advice possible from industry; meeting client needs; and clearer, higher quality standards, all within a nationally consistent, quality VET system. In a rapidly changing global work and social environment, improvement must be continuous and the VET system will continue to change to equip Australia and Australians for the future.

An eye on the future

Part of ANTA’s role in providing leadership for the VET system involves planning for the future. Our current vision is given in the National Strategy 1998-2003.
Thinking about the future means setting the scene, recognising where we are now, looking at likely or possible forward scenarios, and setting a vision for achieving them.
