Abstract

This study draws together data collected by NCVER, the Australian Bureau of Statistics and from the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations to provide a picture of how many and where young people (aged 15 to 19 years) study.

Nationally, the data show that of the young people at university, 57% were female and 43% were male, and of those in training, 56% were male and 44% were female. In comparison, the gender divide at school is just about equal, in line with population figures.

Of all young people in Australia, 80% of all teenage girls and 78% of all teenage boys were enrolled in school, vocational training or university in August 2010.

Compared with 2009, the number of young people studying increased - with a 2.4% rise in school students, a 4.8% growth in university students, and a 3.3% increase in VET students.
