VET vs Uni
Busting myths about VET (Vocational Education & Training)
Hear from students and VET graduates as they break down myths and help demystify vocational education pathways. Dept of Education, NSW. 4.56min
Weighing up the options between university and vocational education can be difficult depending on which industry you want to enter. In some instances, you may only have one choice.
We’ve asked our apprentices and trainees about why they chose Vocational Educational & Training (VET) when also presented with an opportunity to go to University to which most said they enjoy being able to ‘earn while they learn’ and ‘gain valuable skills on the job’.
On-the-job experience is valued highly by employers. The experience that a trade or traineeship offers is a valuable introduction into the working world, one which teaches workforce etiquette, skills relevant to the industry and provides a nationally recognised qualification, all within a 12–48 month period.
Upon successful completion, many skills shortage industries will pay above $56k per annum for a qualified trade person, there is a higher chance for employment outcomes for qualified tradespeople and an opportunity for further study including University education.
- 82% of VET graduates who completed an apprenticeship or traineeship are employed after training*
- $56,000 per annum is the median income of a VET graduate working full time after training*
- Nil entry requirements and in some instances study can commence whilst at school

- $54,000 per annum us the median income of a University graduate*
- Entry requires an ATAR

What is a Group Training Organisation (GTO)?
A group training organisation (GTO) is an organisation that employs apprentices and trainees, and then places them with a host employer who they work for whilst receiving on-the-job training for their apprenticeship or traineeship.
GTOs support the apprenticeship and traineeship system in Australia by providing: employment for apprentices and trainees opportunities for employers who can’t support an apprentice or trainee for the full term of an apprenticeship or traineeship, or think it is too administratively cumbersome, to still take on an apprentice or trainee employment opportunities for apprenticeships and traineeships that otherwise might not have existed.
What will the interviewer ask me?

Have some examples where you have undertaken projects at school or home that may be relevant to the job. Knowing these before you go to the interview will demonstrate that you are enthusiastic and know what to expect in the role.
