Reporting requirements

AVETMISS reporting in South Australia

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 AVETMISS Standard provides the national framework for the collection of this activity.

AVETMISS reporting checklist

The end of the year is fast approaching, which means all 2022 South Australian government funded VET activity must be reported to STELA in an AVETMISS compliant format by COB Friday, 27 January 2023. Fee for service activity (non-funded) can be included in your STELA submission or can be reported separately to NCVER.

An AVETMISS Reporting Checklist has been created to provide organisations guidance on how to fulfil their AVETMISS reporting requirements.

This checklist MUST be completed and submitted upon finalising your 2022 training activity in STELA.


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.

Deadline for 2022 end of year reporting is Friday 27 January 2023.
