The Skills for All Training Provider Handbook is a practical guide for employees, contractors, and agents of Skills for All Training Providers. It contains information to assist Training Providers deliver training services and use the Skills for All systems and processes.
Skills for All Student Agreement
Every student enrolled in a Skills for All funded training place must have a Skills for All Student Number and a signed Skills for All Student Agreement. The Student Agreement must be completed and the Skills for All Student Number issued when they enrol for the first time in a Skills for All Course.
The Student Agreement sets out the purposes for which personal information is collected by the Skills for All Training Provider and the Minister for Employment, Higher Education and Skills and how it will be used.
In the future students will be able to access their personal information held by DSD and view information about the training they have undertaken through Skills for All by using their Skills for All Student Number and a password.
The Skills for All Training Provider must ensure that a signed Skills for All Student Agreement for every new student is emailed to the Department of State Development (DSD) within 30 days of enrolment (Contract clause 15.4). The Student Agreement Processing Instructions outline the procedures for providing signed Student Agreements to DSD.
Skills for All enrolment form template
The enrolment form template will assist you in designing your enrolment form and enrolment processes. It is designed to cover all the elements that you will need when enrolling students in Skills for All training including assessing eligibility for a Skills for All training place and for Student Course Fee concessions. It covers all the data elements required by VETA. It should help in meeting the requirements for complete and accurate AVETMISS reporting. The template is now attached to the Enrolment and Training Account Guideline.
Information Privacy Principles
Under the Freedom of Information Act students can request to see the information being collected about them by the Minister and to check the accuracy of that information. Training Providers have obligations to students to provide them with timely access to their personal records held by the Training Provider including information about their participation and progress in the Course.
For more information see the South Australian Information Privacy Principles.
Unique Student Identifier
The Unique Student Identifier (USI) scheme will begin from 1 January 2015. Training providers will need to record a valid USI for all students in order to issue a student with a qualification or statement of attainment. The USI will help to streamline the assessment of course prerequisites and credit transfer through access, with the student's permission, to an online record of student attainment. From 1 January 2015, the USI will become a mandatory data field for AVETMISS reporting.
