Charles Darwin University (CDU) is the largest VET provider in the Northern Territory. In 2018 CDU supported 8785 students undertaking study in 180 courses across 123 locations locally, interstate and internationally.
CDU prides itself on the quality of its students, delivery and educators. Its students are recognised locally and nationally for their education achievements and 87 per cent of graduates are employed four months after graduating.
CDU places a lot of emphasis on professional development for its educators, an emphasis that has resulted in the university leading the Northern Territory Vocational Education and Training workforce development program, improving VET educator quality across participating NT Registered Training Organisations (RTOs).
CDU is a national leader in remote Indigenous VET education, providing quality education to all Territorians, and was acknowledged in the nationally recognised report Ready for Work, which sets the benchmark for RTOs in improving engagement, design and delivery of training in remote Australia.
