The Assistant Minister for Vocational Education and Skills The Honorable Karen Andrews (MP) released a media statement today regarding the completion rates in VET (Vocational Education and Training).

 

In summary, the release makes note of the increasing completion rates from students undertaking VET qualifications and attributes this success to a number of reasons including:

 

  • The Australian Government’s commitment to improving the status of VET
  • Better use of targeted subsidies particularly towards skill set enrolments

 

AITT participates in a number of government funded initiatives including:

  • Work Ready Funding in South Australia for the:
    • CHC50113 Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care
    • CHC30113 Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care
    • BSB40215 Certificate IV in Business
    • BSB41415 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety
    • BSB51315 Diploma of Work Health and Safety
    • TAE50216 Diploma of Training Design and Development
  • Employability Skills Training as part of the Government Youth Jobs PaTH program for the:
    • 10465NAT Certificate III of Work Skills for Career Enhancement and Management

 

Both programs have demonstrated excellent completion rates with many students either finding work, or enhancing their current position. As an RTO, AITT is continuously striving to improve completion rates through various means such as:

 

  • Offering blended delivery for Work Ready students to book face to face classes that suit them
  • Ensuring our LMS is smart device friendly so students can access work and support continently
  • Continuous improvement of course materials and case studies to suit a variety of industries and contexts
  • Regular upskilling of trainers to improve delivery and skillset
