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. These data are 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 are then further validated and quality checked for inconsistencies.
