Background about ACACA and their report on VET in Senior Secondary Certificates of Education
ACACA, Australasian Curriculum, Assessment and Certification Authorities, is the national body for the chief executives of the statutory bodies responsible for certificates of senior secondary education in the Australian states and territories and in New Zealand.
In Australia, ACACA agencies all have, as part of their legislative responsibilities, the certification of student achievement in post-compulsory schooling. Since 1998, this has included recognition of achievement in Vocational Education and Training (VET) in Schools, in accordance with the Ministerial Council on Employment, Education, Training and Youth Affairs (MCEETYA) National Agreement.
