The Commonwealth, states and territories (through SCOTESE) have agreed to develop a strategy to improve the timelines for the provision of VET data. The aim is to:
- enable more informed decision and policy making
- increase access to timely VET data
- support the transparency agenda in the NPA.
States and territories currently have varying requirements on the submission of data from providers, and the current annual national collection cycle sees VET provider data being submitted nationally by states and territories once a year.
Ways of obtaining more timely and current national VET data are currently being explored.
