Student Outcomes Survey - RTO reports

16 April 2020


Each year, the National Student Outcomes Survey (SOS) collects important information about VET students’ satisfaction with their training, their employment outcomes and if they go on to further study. The 2019 survey was designed, subject to response rates, to provide data for registered training organisations (RTO) with:

  • 100 or more domestic graduates in 2018
  • 850 or more domestic subject completers in 2018.

The RTOs that met the above criteria and had enough survey responses for their students may be eligible to obtain a report summarising their students’ survey responses, alongside national and state comparisons.

Report availability

To ensure data are appropriately protected, NCVER will only disclose VET data about RTOs to an authorised person within the RTO. To nominate the authorised contact and obtain a SOS RTO report, the Chief Executive Officer must email NCVER via

The 2019 reports are available until 29 May 2020 to authorised contacts via a secure Portal, which is managed by the fieldwork contractor, Ipsos. After this date, please contact to obtain your RTO's report.
