METHOD OF COLLECTION
For all existing surveys, information has been collected from a sample of employers using the consultant's Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI) system. A commercial sampling frame based on listings in the Yellow Pages has been used.
TIMING OF COLLECTION
July to August.
Frequency of Collection
The survey has been conducted in 2001, 1999, 1997 and 1995. It was previously titled the Employer Satisfaction Survey. In 1999, employers with no employees with VET qualifications were included. The 2001 survey included information on employers of non-recent VET graduates and had additional information about employers' views on aspects of course delivery and graduates' skills.
Due to the development of new Key Performance Measures as part of the National Strategy for the VET System 2004-2010, the next survey will be modified to take a wider focus than previously. The survey is expected to be run in January 2005, and will be titled the Survey of Employer Use and Views of the Vocational Education and Training System.
