Create a lasting career full of opportunity with Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) qualifications and skills.

Why is everyone talking about STEM?

STEM is all about new technologies, processes and equipment changing how we work and the type of work we do. Demand for STEM skills continues to grow.

Gaining STEM qualifications and skills can help you achieve a lasting career with opportunities.

With strong growth in STEM-based jobs in recent years, South Australia’s Training and Skills Commission estimate that by 2025, about 1 in 7 workers in South Australia will have a STEM-based job.

With VET-qualified workers making up the highest proportion of Australia’s STEM workforce, vocational education and training (VET) courses, apprenticeships and traineeships are a great way for you to take advantage of STEM career opportunities.

STEM skills can also help you be flexible and adapt to new innovations and opportunities.

If you’re looking for a rewarding career that will last, explore the wide range of STEM-based occupations VET can help you achieve.
