DESCRIPTION


This collection gathers administrative data from Australia's publicly-funded vocational education and training (VET) sector. From 2006, it also includes voluntary submissions of a reduced set of data from non-publicly funded Registered Training Organisations (RTOs). Information about students, courses, qualifications, training providers and public funding is collected.

Scope

Method of Collection

NCVER maintains a database of information on persons undertaking vocational education and training. Each state and territory collates data from their training providers on a student, course and module/unit of competency basis. These data are compiled into AVETMISS format and validated by each training organisation before being submitted to NCVER. The data are then further validated and quality checked for inconsistencies before being used for the production of statistical reports.
