New VET Information Standard in development

As part of the Commonwealth Government’s VET Data Streamlining Program, NCVER is leading the development of a new VET Information Standard on behalf of Commonwealth, state and territory governments, and regulators. Negotiations are continuing between governments and VET regulators to finalise a draft VET Information Standard. NCVER is planning to test this draft with representative training organisations and student management system developers in late 2022/early 2023.

Once approved, the new VET Information Standard will replace the AVETMISS VET Provider 8.0 Collection Specifications. A transition period will enable training providers to plan the timing of their move to the new national standard, and a comprehensive education and transition program will be undertaken to support the VET sector in transitioning to the new arrangements.
