Only Learners that meet the required criteria will be reported to the Victorian Government. Therefore, Wisenet will export all Learners that:
- Have at least 1 Unit Enrolment that has:
- Victorian contract (either Fee For Service or Funded)
- The VSN Export Date falls within the Start and End Dates (eg. Next VSN Submission Date is 02/04/2018 then at least 1 Unit Enrolment must have a Start Date before or equal to 04/2018 and an End Date after or equal to 04/2018).
- Outcome code is anything except
- 40 without specified actual hours
- Has a Course Enrolment that has
- An Enrolment Status (is not an Application)
- Linked to a Course Offer with For AVETMISS = True
- Linked to a Course with VET Flag = Y
- And, the Learner meets one of the following age criteria:
- Is aged 17 or younger on 1 January for the current year
- Is aged 24 or younger on 1 January for the current year
Wisenet has a special arrangement with the government which automatically sends and receives student enrolment data to and from the government’s database via web-services. Specifically, this function automates:
- The export of the data to the government, and
- Allocates the VSN specified by the government to the relevant students via an import
