ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS AND INQUIRIES
ABS publications draw extensively on information provided freely by individuals, businesses, governments and other organisations. Their continued cooperation is very much appreciated: without it, the wide range of statistics published by the ABS would not be available. Information received by the ABS is treated in strict confidence as required by the Census and Statistics Act 1905.
Data used in this publication was provided by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research and the ABS gratefully acknowledges their co-operation and technical advice.
The ABS would also like to acknowledge the valuable co-operation and advice provided by other key stakeholders including the Australian Government Department of Education.
This project was funded through the Strategic Cross-Sectoral Data Committee for Early Childhood, Education and Training, to which the Australian Government Department of Education, the ABS, and each of the states and territories contribute. This committee, which operates within the COAG Education Council governance structure, has responsibility for supporting improvements to cross-sectoral education and training data and facilitating measurement of learning over the life-course through data sharing and data integration.
