This article details the changes made in VETtrak versions 20.4 to accommodate the state and national changes to AVETMISS reporting requirements in 2021.
Changes have been made to VETtrak to allow you to comply with AVETMISS reporting changes for 2021. You can continue to report 2020 data as normal, with the additional fields for 2021 being available so that you can enter data now for enrolments that start or continue into 2021.
The following changes have been made to prepare VETtrak for the 2021 AVETMISS reporting changes for Skills Victoria (SVTS).
