Course Enrolment Journeys

Enrolment is the process of recording a Learner’s registration into a Course.

Depending on your Training Contract and Funding Type, certain fields in Wisenet will require specific set up. However, the process overall is somewhat similar in adding a Course Enrolment.

We have separated the process into seven (7) stages below. Complete each stage and choose the appropriate tab, where required, to set up for the correct delivery method.

Navigation!

We understand that you may feel overwhelmed with the amount of information available within the Course Enrolment Journey page, and the number of click-out links.

By default all the links in this page will open in a new Tab so you do not loose track of where you were on this page.

I am looking for VET Student Loans!

Stage 1

Courses and Units

Wisenet is able to import Courses and corresponding Units as they are listed on Training.gov.au.

  1. Check and Edit your Course and Unit Details accordingly
    • NOTE: If the courses are pre-accredited, then please set them up as Short Courses.

Stage 2

Contracts

Every learner must be linked to a contract for easy reporting. Select the relevant tab below that applies to the contract type you are required to set up. 

Every state funded contract will have a contract code and description. Depending on the state, this may be referred to as contract ID or contract site ID or commitment ID.

See How to Add or Edit a Contract and Training Schedule

Every state funded contract will have a contract code and description. Depending on the state, this may be referred to as contract ID or contract site ID or commitment ID.

Please click on the below link to create your specific state contracts.

How to Add or Edit a Contract and Training Schedule

IMPORTANT NOTE:

  • In NSW, for a smart and skilled contract, the commitment ID is issued per student. Do not create a contract per student. Instead create a generic contract with:
    • Contract code = YYYYSAS
    • Description = YYYY Smart and Skilled
  • For WA, please ensure you add a start and end date for your contracts. So, you can filter contracts based on this contract end date value on the export page .

Create a generic Fee For Service contract with:

  • Contract code = FFS
  • Description = Fee For Service

See How to Add or Edit a Contract and Training Schedule

NOTE:

If you deliver Fee For Service training in WA, please link the FFS contract to the Other (Aus) state. This will enable the national outcomes for you to choose under the unit enrolments.

If a School based trainee is enrolling into a VET investment funded program then you will have to create a contract with appropriate contract code and description. If the Learner is not funded, then attach the enrolment to a FFS contract.

See How to Add or Edit a Contract and Training Schedule

There is no specific contract that is required for ACFE programs. However, as contracts and training schedules are a mandatory field for any accredited course offer in Wisenet, please setup a contract as below:

  • Contract Code = ACFE
  • Contract Description = ACFE
  • State = Choose appropriately

Now, repeat the same for the training schedule.

For more information, see How to Add or Edit a Contract and Training Schedule

Every Learner must be linked to a contract for easy reporting. Create a generic Fee For Service contract with

  • Contract code = FFS
  • Description = Fee For Service
  • State = Appropriate states or Other (OS) for any other countries.

See How to Add or Edit a Contract and Training Schedule

NOTE:

The option Other (Aus) is used by RTOs in Western Australia to report to NCVER.

Stage 3

Locations

Locations are used in Wisenet to tag delivery locations for each Course Offer.

Stage 4

Throughout Wisenet there are fields that use customisable dropdown lists. They allow you to manage what values are available for a specific field in a way that is meaningful for your organisation.

Some dropdown lists are important for your reporting purposes – such as Workplace Positions for Training Plans.

See How to Set Up Custom Dropdowns

Checklists – Only applicable for Foundation Skills Victoria Funding, Funded, FFS and Federal Funded

Checklists are usually used to track your enrolment tasks like collecting Ids, previous qualifications, pre-training reviews etc. Checklists can be added to all record types to collect additional data unique to your Training Organisation’s requirements. This information can be used to track progress or to display required content in custom reports eg. Letter of Offer and Training Plan.

Setting up master checklist items at this point will help later in the journey to set them up as template checklists.

See: How to Add, Edit or Delete a Checklist Item

For Foundation Skills Victoria Funding Only: The following checklists are important to record and report Foundation Skills LLN Assessments

Email Templates – Only applicable for Funded, FFS and Federal Funded

You can use email templates to standardise your communications and save time. Setting up email templates at this point will help later in the journey to set them up as automated messages under Course Offers.

See: How To Create and Edit an Email Template

uReport Templates – Only for Funded, FFS and Federal Funded, ACFE (optional), and International Offshore (optional)

Custom templates can be created and updated as quickly as editing a Word document and uploading a file. It is recommended you create custom templates for Training Plans and Credentials.

See Create a Custom uReport Template

School Location ID – Only applicable to VET in School (VETis)

In Wisenet, the School Locations are setup as Workplaces. See the list of School Locations to get the location ID before you follow the steps below to set up your School Location ID.

See How to Set Up School Location ID

Staff – Only applicable to ACFE

Staff section is used to create trainer and assessor profiles. The profiles can be tagged to different course enrolments and unit enrolments.

See How To Add and Edit Staff

Stage 5

Course Offers

Before you begin to setup Course Offers, it is important to check your Courses and Units to avoid any AVETMISS validation errors.

There are different ways to create a course offer. You can either create a course offer per contract term or create a course offer per calendar year.

See How To Add a Course Offer

All AVETMISS details must be completed to avoid any missing data in your course enrolments.

See Field Guidelines: Australia

Add the LLN Assessment Checklist you created earlier to your Foundation Skills course offers as course enrolment template checklists.

When you copy a course offer you can copy all the enrolment checklist template items too.

See: How to Set Up Enrolment Checklist Templates

If your learners are already in the course offer, then remember to bulk add the checklist items to their enrolments

See: How To Bulk Add, Remove and Update Checklists

A Unit Offer represents the delivery instance of a Unit. It is always associated with a Course Offer and takes many of its default values from the Course Offer including:

Key data that applies to the group (such as the trainer/s, delivery location, methodology and assessment). The government reporting requirements that apply to Learner course and unit enrolments (such as funding type)

See How To Add, Edit or Delete Unit Offers

This step will allow you to set unit fees and other defaults like Trainers and Assessment methods. See How To Set Unit Offer Defaults

You can quickly add default Enrolment Checklists during the enrolment process by setting up Enrolment Checklist Templates against a Course Offer or Unit Offer.

This allows you to select which Checklists with desired Checklists values. This can save a lot of time during enrolments.

See How to Set Up Enrolment Checklist Templates

Learncycle allows you to automatically update records and create Tasks, Documents and Messages which is triggered by key events in the Learner’s Lifecycle. Use your custom templates, or our standard ones, to send personalised messages and documents on your schedule.

Stage 6

The Enrolment Process

The enrolment process is very simple for a funded student.  See How To Enrol Learners

NOTE: Select a value for Assessment Type under each Course Enrolment:

  • Update the ‘LLN Assessment Type’ in the Client course enrolment to record which kind of assessment was used.
  • You must ensure that all relevant compliance fields are completed depending on AVETMISS requirements. See Field Guidelines: Australia
Update Individual ResultsUpdating Outcome Codes

In the Learner’s course enrolment checklist items, update the ‘Amount’ field to show the learner’s assessment result:

  • Make sure the checklist item is marked as completed
  • this report only shows the first two decimal places according to the reporting requirements
  • values less than 0.01 will report as 0
