Know your Reporting requirement and Schedule

Smart and Skilled 2017 (See Section 15.2)

If you are required to complete Smart and Skilled (SaS) reporting, it is important that you incorporate specific SaS field collection and processes into your Course Offer, Learner and Enrolment setup. Spending a little more time up front can save a lot of time later.

Set up for Reporting

While this is not strictly required, it is however recommended, as it allows you to proactively complete your data integrity checks to ensure

  • The right amount of data is being reported
  • There isn’t any incorrect data
  • Update outcome codes

Prepare for Export

Once you are ready to export the SaS data you can follow the export steps.

How to Export SaS data

After your export has been submitted to Smart and Skilled there may still be errors.

These errors descriptions and how to fix them can be found on the NSW Reject ID page
