This publication provides a summary of data relating to students, program, subjects, and training providers in Australia’s government-funded vocational education and training (VET) system. Government-funded is defined as Commonwealth and state or territory government-funded training delivered by contracted training organisations.

Data for the Government-funded students and courses series are received by NCVER in four cumulative submissions:

  • January to March, submitted in May
  • January to June, submitted in August
  • January to September, submitted in November
  • January to December, submitted in March.

This allows additional data to be reported and corrections made to previously submitted data.

The data in this publication cover the period of 1 January to 31 March 2022

For comparative purposes it examines data for the same period of the previous year.
