AVETMISS State Specific Fields for Tasmania

In January 2020, Skills Tasmania introduced a number of new Tasmanian-specific fields for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) to report against in their training activity data:

In the NAT00080:

  1. Client Industry of Employment
  2. Client Occupation Identifier

In the NAT00120:

  1. Client Tuition Fee (not new for the NAT00120, but the requirement to report the field in all submissions is new)
  2. Program Enrolment Identifier
  3. Client Resource Fee

In the NAT00130:

  1. Income Contingent Loan Indicator
  2. Program Commencement Date
  3. Program Enrolment Identifier
  4. Program Status Identifier
  5. Client Resource Fee
  6. Client Tuition Fee

All relevant specifications, including definitions can be found in the Tasmanian Specific Reporting Requirements for the AVETMISS VET Provider Collection (v.1.04 updated 22 September 2021) I PDF 1.7MB Word 600KB.

To allow for challenges arising from COVID-19, errors in the new fields have been returning warnings instead of errors when RTO submissions are processed by Skills Tasmania.

Skills Tasmania is offering a final extension to transition arrangements for reporting the new fields. Until 30 September 2021, data errors in the eight new fields will continue to return warnings only. Following this date, they will revert to returning errors.

We encourage RTOs to report correctly against new fields if they are not already doing so. From 1 October 2021, correct reporting of the new fields will be mandatory and RTOs must resolve all errors prior to submission to Skills Tasmania.

Queries about the changes can be directed to VETResearch@skills.tas.gov.au.
