    Are you considering taking on full-time study? Or perhaps like many Australian’s you are returning to study after a long break. The great part about gaining a vocational education and training qualification is that it can not only give you a competitive advantage in the job market, but it will help you get on the path to your dream career! A training and assessment qualification, like the Cert IV Training and Assessment means you are adding a training qualification as well as a new skill to your current industry experience or trade skills!

    However, many potential students find returning to study difficult or have difficulty navigating Australia’s educational system. For your convenience I have found a great video that outlines the basic layout of Australia’s schools, VET (TAFE) and university system:

    Australia’s Current Education and Training Climate

    The video looks at the education of Australia and the Government’s current education spending. At the moment, Australia spends more than $62 billion on education and is divided into the approximate areas:

    • $33 billion on schools
    • $6.8 billion on TAFE
    • $17 billion on university

    Overall, schools have seen a 3.7% increase, TAFE almost an 11% increase in funding and universities stand at receiving just over 9% extra in government funding. The increase in TAFE spending for the vocational education and training sector is largely attributed to non-government sources.
