VET Related Bodies (VRBs) & VET Admission Bodies (VABs)
In order to qualify as a VAB or VRB, an organisation must meet one of the definitions specified in the Student Identifiers (VET Admission Bodies) Instrument 2015.
VET related body means:
- a Department of the Commonwealth, or a Department of a State or Territory, that deals with matters relating to VET (including the funding of VET)
- a body (whether incorporated or not) established by or under a law of the Commonwealth, a State or a Territory that performs functions relating to VET (including the funding of VET)
- a VET Regulator (within the meaning of the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011)
- an entity specified in an instrument under subsection.
Under the Instrument, the following organisations are VABs:
- a government or non-government school authority or individual school whose students undertake a VET delivered in secondary schools program
- an Australian Apprenticeship Support Network provider contracted by the Commonwealth
- a Commonwealth, state or territory correctional services facility
- an organisation that is a VET Related Body (VRB)
- one of the four agencies nominated in the Instrument that manage admissions to VET.
