The Charles Darwin University (CDU) Vocational Education and Training (VET) Faculty is responsible for the planning, delivery and reporting of government subsidized and fee for service training and assessment to approximately 14,000 students across the Northern Territory. Critical to this is compliance with the National VET Quality Framework to deliver accredited training to school students, Indigenous Territorians, job seekers, apprentices, trainees and existing workers as well as productive partnerships with industry and other key stakeholders so as to increase VET participation and outcomes.

The teams within of the School of Primary Industries are as follows: Agriculture and Rural Operations (Top End); Conservation and Land Management (Top End); Horticulture and Aquaculture (Top End); and Primary Industries (Central).
