National Reconciliation Week: grounded in truth
This week we acknowledge National Reconciliation Week 2019 and the important role VET plays in closing the employment gap for Indigenous Australians.
Research shows VET is a preferred post-school learning pathway for Indigenous students, with figures showing a steady increase from 2005 to 2015 for participation in higher level qualifications.
This shift is a positive sign, as employment rates are greater for those who gain a Certificate III or higher.
For a comprehensive overview of Indigenous VET participation, completion and employment outcomes, view the infographic on our Portal.
You can also read our 2018 special edition of NCVER News, where we compiled a full run-down of research, facts and figures relating to Indigenous participation in VET.
