This publication provides information on the flow and distribution of government contributions that stimulate or support publicly-subsidised vocational education and training (VET) activity in Australia. This information is based on the National VET Funding Collection, which has three distinct parts:
1. Jurisdictions' contributions and allocations
2. Funding activities and distributions, which includes:
- Funding activities and distributions (excluding loan values)
- Funding for VET Student Loans
3. Public VET asset base
These data are sourced from financial and training records held by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training, and state and territory departments responsible for VET.
Note the National VET Funding Collection will be phased in over three years, with a subset of data collected and reported for 2017, and full implementation for 2019.
Reporting includes direct and indirect funding for VET including employer incentive programs for workforce training.
