Vocational education and training (VET) provides employment-related skills across a wide range of vocations. As the Focus Topic in this chapter shows, it is the avenue for people of all ages to develop skills to enter or re-enter the labour force, and to deepen their capabilities for existing jobs. The indicators in this section report on participation in VET courses (2.1) and attainment of VET qualifications (2.2).
