These statistics detail information on the outcomes of graduates approximately six months after they completed their Vocational Education and Training (VET). The employment outcomes, median salaries, and top three occupations and industries are shown for graduates. Data is displayed at three different levels:
- The course level, for the 276 most popular courses;
- "Similar courses", which includes the course and other courses within the same field of education at the same level; and
- All courses at the same level as the course.
Data is sourced from the Student Outcomes Survey, conducted by NCVER, which focuses on students' employment outcomes and satisfaction with VET in Australia.
The Student Outcomes Survey is an annual survey, which covers students who have an Australian address as their usual address and are awarded a qualification (graduates) or who successfully complete part of a course and then leave the VET system (subject completers). Students who undertake recreational, leisure or personal enrichment (short) courses are excluded. The survey has included students from all VET providers (not just TAFE), as well as students whose training was on a fee-for-service basis.
