Have you considered pursuing vocational education after school?
Research shows that 4 out of 5 parents would prefer their child to go to university after school over vocational education and that many young people and parents don’t understand the benefits of vocational education and training (e.g., TAFE, apprenticeships, traineeships).
2017 Australian research suggests that:
- 9 out of the 10 top occupations predicted to have the most jobs growth are in vocational training areas.
- The median full-time income for a vocational education graduate is $56,000 vs $54,000 for someone with a bachelor degree.
- Nearly eight in 10 vocational education graduates have a job soon after training, vs about seven in 10 university graduates; and
- More than nine in 10 trade apprentices have jobs after finishing training.
