Vocational Education In Australia

Luis Said:

How many percent of people in Australia pursue their education in college after graduating from high school?

We Answered:

In Australia, some students finish at year 10 and undertake apprenticeships or traineeships. These are basically your trade jobs. Some also go to year 12 then undertake the training. This involves working on the job while undertaking studies, be it 1 day per week at TAFE or on the job with booklets you fill out and send it.

Other may go to TAFE after school and get qualifications. Myself I have Certificates 2 (half completed for my HSC so did the remainder subjects) and 3 in Retail Operations. Certificate 4 and Diploma in Business Management and Cert 4 and Diploma in Human Resources. Many TAFE courses are trade related, but also your computing subjects as business subjects are taught at TAFE. TAFE is seen as the more practical tertiary education.

University is the more theory based and is your Degree, Masters, Doctorate, etc.. Uni takes 3 - 8 years to complete while TAFE is mostly 1 year. These are your medicine, teaching, etc.. subjects. Uni is also much more expensive then TAFE, costing easy $5,000 per year. We have a loan repayment scheme for citizens called HECS which lets you defer tuition fees and pay them back interest free through your taxes once you earn over $50,000.

Those that don't go to tertiary education.. In my parents day, very fee did go to TAFE or uni, only those who wanted to be a doctor or an accountant or wanted a trade, even then it was optional. These days even hospitality want some qualifications. I'm part of Generation Y my generation are the start of the tertiary students. The following generations the large majority will do some form of tertiary qualifications.

So an estimate for those finishing school say last year.

Uni - 30% many won't have got in so will wait till they are 21 to enter as a mature age student or enter through TAFE. If you have a TAFE qualification greater the certificate 4 you can have it count towards your degree, i.e. A diploma gives you 1 year off a degree as long as it's related. There are also uni prep classes that are purely to find an avenue into uni.

TAFE - 80% (60% TAFE only, 20% as well as their uni degree) A lot of people go to uni but find they still need tafe as they don't know how to apply the skills they learnt at uni.

10% will not get qualifications but work in retail or cleaning, basic hospitality jobs or remain unemployed.

I hope that gives you an idea, anything else you wanna know just ask.

Bernard Said:

what are the different levels of education in the us?

We Answered:

It looks like your advanced diploma would be somewhere between vocational school and some university courses. A university degree would be a Bachelor's Degree, which is generally a 4-year degree, though vocational school varies in length... I would choose the "some university courses" option.

"Qualifications awarded by TAFE colleges
TAFE colleges generally award qualifications up to the level of advanced diploma, which is below that of Bachelor degree within the Australian Qualifications Framework.

In many instances TAFE study can be used as partial credit towards Bachelor degree-level university programs. Some TAFE colleges (primarily in Victoria and the ACT) now confer their own degree-level awards, though not beyond the level of Bachelor; this practice is somewhat controversial due to the blurring of once clearly defined boundaries between sectors."
