Job Outlook

The digital economy is changing our job market at an unprecedented pace, and the Vocational Education & Training (VET) sector has a vital role in this emerging industry.

While VET has long been associated with traditional trades and will continue to support and grow these sectors, it is also evolving to meet the demands of a digital generation.

The report by the Skilling Australia Foundation has noted that VET graduates are earning wages comparable to, if not exceeding, those of university degree holders.

According to recent government surveys, vocational education can provide employment opportunities and increase your earning potential more than other conventional approaches while gaining fundamental world skills in industry work placements - all leading towards becoming highly skilled professionals ready for any task in their particular fields.
