Abstract/Summary The sectoral divide between vocational education and training (VET) and higher education in Australia is blurring as a consequence of broader social and economic pressures for a more highly skilled population, but also as a consequence of government policies designed to develop tertiary education markets and to diversify institutional types. The mixed-sector institutions that are emerging are additional to Australia's five dual-sector universities, with their large higher education and TAFE (technical and further education) divisions. Mixed-sector institutions, on the other hand, are institutions with most of their student enrolments in one sector, but which are increasingly offering programs from the 'other' sector. At March 2011 there were 90 institutions in Australia registered to offer programs from both sectors. This includes large dual-sector universities, universities with a small amount of VET provision, TAFE institutes that offer a small amount of higher education and private providers offering both.
