Reports from our key stakeholders

National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER). 

NCVER is the national professional body responsible for collecting, managing, analysing and communicating research and statistics on the Australian vocational education and training (VET) sector.

The NCVER 2020 VET Student Outcomes Report provides a summary of the outcomes and satisfaction of students who completed nationally recognised VET delivered by registered training organisations (RTOs) in Australia during 2019.

OSIR Supported Initiatives

Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY).

LSAY tracks young people as they move from school into further study, work, and other destinations. LSAY provides a rich source of information about young people and their pathways, helping researchers and policymakers make educated decisions about youth policies. The OSIR contributes to the research that LSAY conducts by facilitating connections between the organisation and VET students.

More information about LSAY and their work can be found on their website.
