It has strong industry links and supports students to reach their career goals. Vocational courses are popular with international students, especially from china, India and Thailand. Australia’s vocational institutes are renowned worldwide and they are often invited to deliver training in other countries for governments or design training systems for other institutions and organisations. Your vocational study can help you enter a profession, update your career skills or progress into a university degree. Australia has over 4900 registered training organisations providing nationally recognised training and qualifications. Institutions have to meet national standards and they are regularly audited for quality. trAining For current trends The great benefit of the vocational system is its links with industry. You will learn from experienced teachers in real-life work environments. Programs are developed by industry experts, ensuring that the curriculum is relevant and up to date with the necessary job requirements and current trends. Some courses also include work experience in real companies. Industry and government work together to develop training outcomes, which are then implemented according to nationally endorsed training packages. Vocational courses provide students with skills, called national industry competency standards, that employers have identified as critical to their work needs.
