Adult language, literacy, numeracy, and digital skills as well as employability skills (eg: collaboration, problem solving) often referred to as foundation skills—are key ingredients that help people get a job, remain employed, look after their mental and physical health, and participate in their community. The role of VET in helping people develop these skills is of interest.
Using Total VET Activity and National Student Outcome Survey data, this research explores the enrolment paths, program completions and employment and further study outcomes of learners who had enrolled in nationally recognised foundation skills programs between 2016 – 2019. The research highlights the complex enrolment journeys foundation skills learners take through VET.
