The National VET Content Centre contains collections of VET (Vocational Education and Training) learning content that have been developed and maintained with ongoing funding and support through The National VET E-learning Strategy (previously the Australian Flexible Learning Framework) since 2000.

National VET Content offers thousands of free learning objects which can be downloaded for FREE by teachers and trainers to use with their learners.

The collections of learning content include the Toolbox learning objects (smaller self-contained components of content from Flexible Learning Toolboxes), Generic Skills learning objects, E-learning Innovations objects, Industry Integration of E-learning objects, Objects from the National Digital Learning Resources Network and Customisation Tutorials.

Learning objects generally support an element or unit of competency. They are high quality, cost-effective, interactive e-learning and assessment resources featuring scenarios, images and activities covering a large range of topics, from aged care to plumbing and horticulture to food safety.

In addition to the learning objects you can also purchase Flexible Learning Toolboxes via the site. The Toolboxes come on CD-ROM and are an integrated learning program, incorporating a number of units of competency to support a qualification from a training package. There are more than 120 complete Toolboxes supporting over 190 nationally recognised qualifications.

Toolboxes have been designed to be used by RTOs, business and industry, delivering on and off the job training. Toolboxes cover a diverse range of educational and industry areas including Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, Construction, Electrotechnology, Manufacturing, Language Literacy & Numeracy, Frontline Management, Health, Indigenous Awareness and more. Each Toolbox comes with a teacher guide and installation booklet, and can be customised to suit different learner or workplace training needs.
