ItemParticipation in VET across Australia: a regional analysis(National Institute of Labour Studies, 2009) Walstab, Anne; Lamb, StephenThis report examines participation in vocational education and training (VET) across different regions of Australia. Two main types of analysis are presented: regional participation rates are mapped; and regression analyses which use key regional data are used to predict participation and identify 'exceptional' regions (those with unusually high or low rates of participation), despite what might be expected, given their industry base and population. The report finds that there are large variations in participation across the regions, with participation stronger in rural areas, particularly for basic and middle levels. ItemSocial area differences in VET participation(National Institute of Labour Studies, 2009) Teese, Richard; Walstab, AnneThe participation of Australians in vocational education and training (VET) varies a great deal in terms of levels of training, industry fields and demographic aspects; that is, age, gender, locality and socioeconomic status. The purpose of this study was to undertake an analysis of various aspects of VET participation by age, gender, socioeconomic status and Australian Qualifications Framework level. Information for Queensland and South Australia is also provided to illustrate the capacity to analyse this information at a state/territory level.
