NCVER released “Employers’ use and views of the VET system 2017” on 26 October 2017. The report provides information about employers’ use and views of the vocational education and training (VET) system and the various ways employers use the VET system to meet their skill needs.

Of particular interest to T&L was the growth in use of training in the last 12 months. From the information provided, it appears that transport, postal and warehousing employers are providing employees with significantly more training than in 2015.
