On Track surveys school leavers to find out if they are on track to a bright future.
School leavers are contacted within six months of leaving school to see if they are on a path to further education, training or employment. Young people can also seek advice and assistance via a referral service if they need to get back on track.
How it works
The survey happens from late April to mid July and is run by the Social Research Centre, on behalf of the Department.
Students who consent to participate receive a letter providing with a username and password to access the online survey. The survey takes 5 to 10 minutes. All school leavers who complete the survey online are entered into a draw to win a prize.
On Track data helps build a comprehensive picture of what happens to young people after they leave school. This assists the Victorian government improve school, career, local job and training services. It also helps to develop the support available to young people, to ensure they have access to the guidance and skills they need to achieve their education and employment goals.
