Employer & Wage Data

A description of the employer and wage data on the Job & Training Descriptions and the Industry pages.

This page has information about the Employer and wage data for this industry found on both the Job & Training Descriptions and specific Industry pages. For each of the data type we report: the data source, the AATIS analysis of that data, and the meaning of the categories or icons shown.

The data shown are reported by training package. For the Job & Training Descriptions the data relates to the training package that the relevant qualification sits within. On the Industry pages the training package is aligned with that industry. For more information about the training packages have a look at the National Register of VET or the Skills Service Organisations.

Description of the data

Australian Apprenticeships Commencements data

Australian Apprenticeships commencements data can be found in the National Apprentice and Trainee Collection from the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER). Data is updated quarterly for the year to the most recent quarter. For example, when the March quarter is released the data is updated to the year from the previous April to March.

Commencements

To calculate the total commencements the data was summed across all qualifications within the relevant training package for all Australian commencments. Data is shown for the year to the most recent quarter available.

Commencements Change

The change in commencements was calculated as the difference in Australian Apprenticeships Commencements data (as described above) for the most recent year and the year prior. That is, the total commencements for the training package across Australia for the year to the most recent quarter, minus the commencements for the year prior (e.g. April 2017 - March 2018 compared with April 2016 - March 2017).

The results were then calculated as a percentage of the most recent years commencements, as the change divided by the total commencements. This could give a maximum range of -100% to 100%, with a negative value showing a decrease in enrolments and a positive value showing an increase. Data was categorised into three groups.

 A decrease of more than 10% of commencements.

 A change of between negative and positive 10%.

 An increase of more than 10% of commencements.

Graduate data

Graduate data is from the National Student Outcomes Survey from NCVER for the past three year's surveys. This data is for apprentices and trainees who fully completed the qualification related to their apprenticeship and traineeship, refered to as graduates. Data is taken from the training package related to that Industry group or qualification. Data is updated annually at the end of the year.

Graduates Employed

Each icon represents the percentage of graduates who were in any employment after training (full-time, part-time or casual) in any industry.

  Between 0 and 50% of graduates were employed after training.

 Between 50% and 65% of graduates were employed after training.

 Between 65% and 75% of graduates were employed after training.

 Between 75% and 85% of graduates were employed after training.

Between 85% and 100% of graduates were employed after training.

Graduate Wage

Graduate wage data is from the National Student Outcomes Survey from NCVER, as described for graduate employed data.

The average wage of graduates from the training package who were employed full-time after training for the most recent year only, transformed into weekly wages. Categories are based on those specified in the Australian Jobs - Occupation Matrix and are consistent with the Industry Wage categories.

 Wages below $950 per week.

 Wages between $951 to $1100 per week.

 Wages between $1101 to $1350 per week.

 Wages between $1351 and $1650 per week.

 Wages above $1650 per week.

Industry data

Industry data is from the Australian Jobs - Occupation Matrix from the Australian Government Department of Jobs and Small Business. Occupation codes at the 4-digit ANZSCO level were matched with vocational education and training (VET) qualifications from the training.gov.au register of VET. Data is updated annually in the middle of the year.

For the Job & Training Descriptions only data from these VET aligned qualifications and occupations was used, giving us industry statistics aligned to the training package.

On the specific Industry pages the VET aligned qualifications and occupations were used. Additionally, any 4-digit ANZSCO occupation codes that were not aligned to a VET qualification, were categorised against the closest matching industry group. This gives us data for the whole industry.

Industry Growth

The overall change in employment figures in the 5 years leading up to the end of the previous calendar year, categorised as a decrease, increase, or as stable. 

 A decrease of more than 5% over 5 years.

 A change of between -5% and 5% over 5 years.

 An increase of more than 5% over 5 years.

Industry Size

The number of employees in occupations related to the training package. Some occupations are related to multiple training packages and are therefore included in all relevant packages. Quintiles were used for the industry size categories.

 The lowest fifth for number of employees.

 The second lowest fifth for number of employees.

 The middle fifth for number of employees.

 The second highest fifth for number of employees.

 The highest fifth for number of employees.

Industry Wage

Industry Wage

The average wage of full-time employees in occupations related to this training package, as wage per week. Categories are the same as for the Graduate Wages.

 Wages below $950 per week.

 Wages between $951 and $1100 per week.

 Wages between $1101 and $1350 per week.

 Wages between $1351 and $1650 per week.

 Wages above $1650 per week.
