Tasmania Specific Reporting Requirements

AVETMISS State Specific Fields for Tasmania

Tasmania is introducing a number of new State specific fields which will need to be reported from the 2020 data collection year.

From the 2020 collection year, the following additional fields will need to be reported:

In the NAT00080:

  1. Client Industry of Employment
  2. Client Occupation Identifier

In the NAT00120:

  1. Client Tuition Fee
  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.1.02 updated 22 November 2019) I PDF 1.7MB Word 600KB.

To allow RTOs time to adjust to the new reporting requirements, for all RTO submissions in the first six months of 2020, data errors in the eight new fields in RTO Student Management Systems will return warnings only when RTOs produce AVETMISS files for submission.

In this six month period, RTOs will still be able to submit AVETMISS files to Skills Tasmania with these warnings present. At the end of the first six months of 2020, RTOs must resolve all errors prior to submission to Skills Tasmania.

Any RTO queries relating to validation errors encountered after the first six months of 2020 can be directed to Skills Tasmania at VETResearch@skills.tas.gov.au.

Guidelines for reporting students continuing their enrolment from 2019

The following fields will not be required for students who are continuing their enrolment from the previous year:

  1. Client Industry of Employment
  2. Client Occupation Identifier
  3. Income Contingent Loan Indicator

Blank entries for these fields will return warnings only.

In the NAT00120 the following fields will not be required for subjects with a Start Date prior to 01/01/2020.

  1. Client Tuition Fee
  2. Client Resource Fee

In the NAT00130 the following fields could be filled either with the fee amount or with 00000 for clients who are continuing from 2019.

  1. Client Tuition Fee
  2. Client Resource Fee

To enable reporting of data for the new state specific fields from 1 January 2020, RTOs are required to update their Student Management Systems. RTOs can ask for an exemption if they are unable to update their systems by the time of their first submission for 2020 training activity. However, submissions for the first quarter of 2020 (January to March 2020), due by 15 April 2020, should meet the new requirements. Exemption requests for activity reporting prior to the first quarter submission (due 15 April 2020) can be sent to VETResearch@skills.tas.gov.au.
