Reporting requirements

AVETMISS reporting in South Australia

AVETMISS reporting

It is a contractual requirement that training organisations (registered and non-registered) that have a funding agreement with the Department for Education (Skills SA) must collect and report statistical data in relation to any VET training activity they have delivered under that agreement. The AVETMIS Standard provides the national framework for the collection of this activity.


The Australian Vocational Education and Training Management Information Statistical Standard is a national data standard utilised by training organisations for the reporting of government funded and fee-for-service VET activity. It provides a consistent and accurate national framework for the collection of data from VET training organisations.

The current version of the Standard is release 8.0, which applies to all training activity from 1 January 2018. Release 8.0 documents are available from the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER).

How do I report my data?

See below guide on how to report AVETMISS data. You can also refer to the Guide to reporting AVETMISS data in South Australia for more direction.

Reporting deadlines

Training Organisations who hold a funding agreement with Skills SA must report all occurrences of funded training activity into STELA on a monthly basis.

The cut-off date for reporting is 5pm on the second Friday of every month.

Note that no extensions can be granted to this deadline, so Training Organisations are strongly advised to report activity a day or more prior to the cut-off to allow sufficient time to correct any errors.

Where Training Organisations only report FFS activity to Skills SA, this must be done at minimum on a quarterly basis.
