Why do you need so many personal details from me?
In the VET (Vocational Education & Training) sector there are certain details which we are legally obligated to obtain for reporting purposes. The questions that we ask on your enrolment form are there so that we can meet those legal obligations; these details are known as AVETMISS data.
Once a year we are required to forward the information we capture from you to the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER). This is a legal requirement placed on all RTO’s under the Data Provision Requirements 2012.
