Positioning vocational education and the occupations it serves worthy post-school pathways
The relative low standing of vocational education and training (VET) and the occupations it serves is an impediment to how this important education sector is resourced, supported and engaged with by young people and their parents. Increasingly, in an era of high aspiration, VET is viewed as an option only for those unable to secure university entrance. This can lead to mismatches between the kinds of skills young people are learning in tertiary education and employment opportunities, with what employers seek in employees, and lengthy and potentially unproductive tertiary education pathways.

Positioning VET as a worthwhile post-school pathway for young Australians is now important for them individually, for communities needing these skills and workplaces whose continuity is premised on employees’ skills.
This webinar offers insights from international studies and discusses the findings of an Australian research project investigating how to position VET as being a more worthwhile, attractive and viable option for young people and those influence their decisions about post-school pathways.
