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. This data is compiled into AVETMISS format and validated by each training organisation before being submitted to NCVER. The data is then further validated and quality checked for inconsistencies before it is used for the production of statistical reports.


Release Schedule

Information is available in the July following the year of enrolment.
