The alliances AVEA has developed between these important organisations in China and the Australian VET providers is a major achievement.

Technical And Further Education
In Australia, technical and further education (TAFE) institutes provide a wide range of predominantly vocational tertiary education courses.
Most VET courses are auspiced under the ASQA authority.
Areas of study available cover a wide range of subjects,trade areas and industry based skills. Including, business, finance, hospitality, tourism, construction, engineering, visual arts, information technology.
TAFE also supplies education and training in the “soft trades/sciences” such as Child Care, Aged Care, Environmental and Sustainability, Horticulture Design?Construction and Human Resource Development.
TAFE colleges are owned, operated and financed by the various state and territory governments.
This is in contrast to the university sector, whose funding is predominantly the domain of the federal government and whose universities are predominantly owned by the state governments or private companies.
Australia VET Sector
Vocational Education and Training (VET) enables students to gain qualifications for all types of employment, and specific skills to help them in the workplace.
The providers of VET include technical and further education (TAFE) institutes, adult and community education providers and agricultural colleges, as well as private providers, community organisations, industry skill centres, and commercial and enterprise training providers. In addition, some universities and schools provide VET.
Vocational education and training is provided through a network of eight state and territory governments and the Australian Government, along with industry, public and private training providers. These organisations work together to provide nationally consistent training across Australia.
The VET sector is crucial to the Australian economy; both for the development of the national workforce and as a major export industry.
The VET (TAFE) sector in Australia has an advantage over other registered Training Organisations (RTO) and other countries, in that all teaching staff are Industry trained and qualified with a minimum five years industry experience. This adds to the skills and relevance of the teaching delivered to students and further cements the relevance of the training and linkage to the needs of industry.
All VET training programs are validated by the Australian Qualiaty Training Authority (ASQA) providing a national Standard and national qualification recognition.
National qualification recognition gives a graduate the added bonus of having their qualification and training recognised throughout Australia and through aligned countries.
VET linkages between China and Australia
Australia has developed an effective, industry-led national VET system which is internationally recognised and well placed to respond to Australia’s strong economic performance and changing demographics. China is also experiencing strong economic growth and substantial demographic change. This growth and change provides substantial challenges to the Chinese VET system. Many of these challenges are similar to those facing Australia, although the scope and size may differ. Therefore, the reforms that both countries need to put in place to meet the challenges are similar. A 2005 study on the promotion of the Australian VET Framework in the PRC found that Australia currently is highly regarded for the structure and operation of its VET system, with elements directly relevant to the Chinese context and needs . China, therefore, has developed a keen interest and good understanding of Australia’s VET system and its modern reforms.
