About the The VET Training System

Education is one of Australia’s best strategies to achieve social, economic and environmental sustainability.

Vocational education and training (VET) is ‘education and training for work’ and part of a broader educational network in Australia that includes schools, universities and adult and community education.

The Australian VET system is one of the most sophisticated in the world because it is:

The employers, unions and professional associations of an industry define the outcomes that are required from training;

The VET system is jointly-managed by state, territory and Australian governments, in partnership with industry and training providers;

Client focused
Clients of the VET system are employers and individuals who use it or intend to use it. This simple, flexible and relevant system responds to client needs.
