Vocational education and training (VET) is tertiary education and training which provides accredited training in job related and technical skills. The providers of VET include technical and further education (TAFE) institutes, adult and community education providers and agricultural colleges, as well as private providers, community organisations, industry skill centres, and commercial and enterprise training providers. In addition, some universities and schools provide VET. Issuing of VET accredited training is governed by the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015 and the Australian Qualifications Framework. The Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) is the national regulator for Australia’s VET sector. ASQA regulates courses and training providers to ensure nationally approved quality standards are met.
