School leavers embrace further education in Victoria
Access to education services is often at the forefront of families' minds when they are looking at buying a house - and it seems that Victoria could be well worth considering.
On Track, the Victorian government's student destination survey, found that the number of school leavers going on to study a bachelor degree at a university or TAFE has increased.
For the first time, more than half of all students leaving Year 12 opted to carry on studying - 52 per cent compared to 49.4 per cent in 2011.
Minister for higher education and skills Peter Hall said: "This On Track data is confirmation of the great work being done in our schools and shows that the future is bright for young people in Victoria."
Meanwhile, families with young children in search of an investment property may also be drawn to Victoria, as investment was recently announced in childhood services.
A total of 97 facilities across the state have been selected to receive a share of $40 million in funding, including $17.5 million for 15 integrated children's centres.
