Standards banner

Standards are established levels of quality or attainment. For the vocational education and training (VET) sector, standards cover: training providers and registered training organisations; the operation of regulators; the collection of training-related data; rules that govern the collection and communication of data; training package and accredited course delivery; technical delivery of online learning; and delivery of courses to overseas students. Maintaining and utilising these standards allows data from a range of sources to be consolidated, analysed and reported consistently and accurately for various purposes. One such standard is AVETMISS, the Australian Vocational Education and Training Management Information Statistical Standard. AVETMISS is a national standard which covers: the National VET Provider Collection; the National Apprentice and Trainee Collection; and the National Financial Data Collection.
