Coding notes

​Where the student has more than one VET qualification or period of study, the details should be recorded for which ever qualification or study contributed the most credit/RPL.

For pre-AQF qualifications, allocate the code for the most closely aligned level of qualification.

*ASCED does not currently include codes for new vocational graduate qualifications.  Nominal codes have been included in this list for use until the classification is updated.

Please refer to the Glossary for further information about terminology used in this document.
