Tasmania Specific Reporting Requirements

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.1.03 updated 4 August 2020) I PDF 1.7MB Word 600KB.

To allow for a period of adjustment to new reporting requirements, errors in the new fields in RTO Student Management Systems have returned warnings only when RTOs produce AVETMISS files for submission.

Given the challenges arising from COVID-19, Skills Tasmania is now extending transition arrangements for reporting until 30 June 2021.

Until then, data errors in the eight new fields will return warnings only. If necessary, RTOs are able to submit AVETMISS files to Skills Tasmania with these warnings present.

We still encourage RTOs to report against new fields where possible. From 1 July, 2021, 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.
