Statistics and the WA data standard
The Department collects and reports a range of statistical information to track engagement and measure the outcomes of vocational education and training in Western Australia.
Funded training providers are required to report enrolment activity according to the rules of the Western Australian VET enrolment data standard, which incorporates the full national standard (AVETMISS for providers) plus additional State requirements.

VET enrolment data
The Key VET enrolment statistics report shows a summary of all training funded by or through the Department under Future Skills WA, including funding categories, age group, disability status, level of education and training provider. Please note that VET enrolment data is not directly comparable with the apprenticeship and traineeship contracts data available below – the two different data sources are not statistically compatible and should not be combined.
Student satisfaction survey
The Student Satisfaction Survey is used to measure the quality of service provided by Western Australia's State Training Providers and to gain a better understanding of their customers and their needs. The latest (2015) survey shows 87.8% of students were satisfied with their course, similar to 86.9% in 2014. Students were significantly more satisfied with the quality of lecturers (87.1%), the reputation of their training provider (88.2%) and campus safety and security measures (88.5%) than in 2014.
Among other survey results:
• 85.1% of students were satisfied with the facilities available at their training provider;
• 83.3% of students were satisfied with the information and customer service provided by staff in student services; and
• 92.4% of Aboriginal students in 2015 were satisfied with their course.
Apprentice and trainee contract data and reports
Apprenticeship and traineeship statistical reports are published in December, March, June and September of each year.
