The Personal Enrichment Education and Training collection gathers data on non-vocational training. This includes recreation, leisure and personal enrichment programs taken for recreational purposes. The data is compiled by NCVER from the national collections of vocational education and training statistics.
Frequency of Collection
Method of Collection
NCVER maintains a database of information on persons undertaking vocational and personal enrichment training. Each state and territory collates data from their training providers on a student, course and module basis. This data is compiled into the Australian Vocational Education and Training Management Information Statistical Standard (AVETMISS) format and validated by each training organisation before being submitted to NCVER. The data is then further validated and quality checked for inconsistencies.
This information is released in the July following the year of enrolment.
Data is available on request.
Information is available for Australia, all states and territories and geographical regions (capital city, other metropolitan, rural and remote).
