Harvey, Brian
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
Apprentice and trainee data are reported by the State and Territory Training Authorities to NCVER (National Centre for Vocational Education Research) on a quarterly basis, starting at the September quarter of 1994. The set of data submitted that quarter is referred to as the National Apprentice and Trainee Collection 1. The sets of data submitted in subsequent quarters are referred to as Collection 2, Collection 3 and so on. At the time of writing, the set of data being submitted is for the March 2010 quarter and is referred to as Collection 63. The data consists of information about the contracts of training entered into by apprentices and employers. The remainder of this document details the method adopted by NCVER to calculate the proportions of attrition and completions that was first used in the 2009 Apprentice and Trainee Annual publication. The next section describes the method in overview and the following section describes the method in detail. (Contains 4 tables.)
