Output-type:

briefing or fact sheet

The Department of Higher Education and Training (the Department) publishes, among others, annual statistics on Post-School Education and Training (PSET) institutions, which also covers the enrolment and graduates data by gender. This assists the Department in tracking progress toward improved access; however, the analysis on this aspect is limited. Gender analysis of access to PSET institutions is also an important indicator as it gives an indication on the provision of education and the equality in terms of accessing PSET institutions.

This Fact Sheet provides an analysis of the gender of students in PSET institutions, in particular the type of programmes/qualifications they enroll and complete/graduate in. This will also serve as a monitoring tool to track provision of PSET opportunities for this group of individuals.
