Vocational Education and Training (VET) is gaining popularity, as learning while earning is being viewed more favourably, especially since COVID-19.
SBS revealed this week that 11 of the top 12 in-demand occupations can be accessed via a VET pathway.
Top 12 occupations in demand listed are:
- Child carers
- Retail sales assistants
- Truck drivers
- Sales representatives
- Dental assistants
- Metal fabricators and Welders
- Registered nurses
- Aged and disabled carers
- Metal fitters and machinists
- Motor mechanics
If that isn’t enough to encourage you to look at the VET options open to you, Employment Minister Michaelia Cash also stated that “31 out of the 50 top-earning occupations” are achievable or require a VET qualification.
Whilst 1 million Australians headed off to university last year, figures also show that 4.2 million Australians undertook various forms of vocational education in the same period.
VET is certainly an option worth considering.
