ABOUT THIS RELEASE
Presents a suite of approximately 40 indicators which covers the spectrum of education and training in Australia. The indicators are based on national level data and are aligned to a recently developed framework for education and training statistics 'Measuring Learning in Australia, a suggested framework for Education and Training statistics'. The framework provides a structure to organise education and training statistics, and within this publication the indicators are grouped into context, resources (human and financial), participation, and outputs and outcomes. A wide range of both ABS and non-ABS statistics are used in the indicators, covering schools, higher education, vocational education and training, and training activities. Each individual indicator includes commentary, tables and/or graphs to describe the data. It also contains some data which will enable international comparisons for some of the indicators. This publication aims to be an easy to understand reference for anyone interested in education and training in Australia.
