Parents Understanding of VET

This research project is examining the level of understanding that parents have of the future of work

About the Research

The Australian Apprenticeships and Traineeships Information Service (AATIS) is seeking parents input into the future of Vocational Education and Training (VET).

We know that parents and guardians are an invaluable resource for young people when it comes to decision making related to career pathways. We require your help to better understand the attitudes and perceptions related to the amount of reliable information parents have about the future of work and the impact of digital technologies on vocational career pathways via the below survey.

Parents have been identified in several recent studies as being the primary influencers of young peoples' career aspirations. Some findings are summarised in a recent AATIS report which found that young people seek reliable sources of information to make informed decisions about post-school education, training and employment options. The current research project takes a related approach by reaching out to parents to learn more about how they form their opinions of VET and what they perceive the future of work to have in store for the young people whose views they influence.

As part of this research project we are seeking parents, or other major influencers with a parental-like role in the lives of young people, to take a short survey. The survey can be located here.
