Abstract
This 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.
