Student Outcomes Survey questionnaires

5 June 2023

The Student Outcomes Survey (SOS) is an annual survey that collects information on vocational education and training (VET) students’ reasons for training, their employment outcomes, satisfaction with training, and further study outcomes. The survey covers students who completed nationally recognised VET delivered by registered training organisations (RTOs) in Australia in the previous calendar year.

In 2024, three questionnaires will be administered depending on the type of training undertaken. This ensures students receive only relevant questions. The questionnaires include:

  • pulse (2 minute) questionnaire for students continuing in training, see pulse in-training questionnaire (36 KB Word)
  • short (5 to 10 minute) questionnaire administered to students undertaken short training, see lite questionnaire (56 KB Word)
  • full (10 minute) questionnaire administered to Certificate II and above qualification completers, see full questionnaire (58 KB Word).
