AVETMISS is a comprehensive, integrated suite of statistical standards for the collection and publication of VET information. The main suite, AVETMISS release 6.0, contains 38 variables. It is complemented by two separate but related suites: one for apprentices and trainee data; and one for financial reporting. The AVETMISS 'Standard for New Apprenticeships' (release 5.0) contains 50 variables. In contrast, 'AVETMISS: the Standard for VET Financial Data' (release 1.7) details the terminology, definitions, and reporting formats for the elements needed in financial statements. Besides maintaining and updating the AVETMISS standards, NCVER develops and maintains data validation software for the submission of data to the AVETMISS specifications. NCVER also provides consultancy and support services for AVETMISS users.


Data relating to vocational education and training activity, including traineeships and apprenticeships (both 'traditional trades' and other apprenticeships).
