Course packet (VET) 2021
The course packet is used to report data on the approved courses that are offered by the provider. The data collected through a course packet is referenced by one or more course admission packets.
Providers are required to report a course packet for each ‘approved course’ in which they intend to admit one or more students.
Structure and reporting requirement
|*E307||Course code||Required for all in scope courses||Before the first course admission is linked to the course|
|E308||Course name||Required for all in scope courses||Before the first course admission is linked to the course|
|*E350||Course of study load||Required for all in scope courses||Before the first course admission is linked to the course|
|*E596||Standard course duration||Required for all in scope courses||Before the first course admission is linked to the course|
|*E609||Course effective from date||Required for all in scope courses||Before the first course admission is linked to the course|
|E610||Course effective to date||Optional||n/a|
*These elements must be reported together when a new course packet is created
Revising and adding data
A provider can update, correct or add data already submitted through a course packet after the initial packet is reported, as per the table below.
|E307: Course code||Corrections only|
|E308: Course name||Update to current value|
|E350: Course of study load||Corrections only|
|E596: Standard course duration||Update to current value|
|E609: Course effective from date||Corrections only|
|E610: Course effective to date||Optional update to current value|
A course packet cannot be deleted if it is linked to an active course admission, exit award or aggregate award record. All revisions made to elements in the course packet will apply to all enrolment records linked to the course, including historical enrolment and completion records. Revisions should therefore only be made where data has been incorrectly reported through a genuine administrative error.
