Information required by the Ministry of Education to give early indicators of demand shifts and trends that may impact vote management and policy impacts.
The Indicative Data Collection (IND) is a set of data items that are specifically required by the Ministry of Education to give early indicators of demand shifts and trends that may impact vote management and policy impacts.
The main benefit of the IND is to provide early information on demand for policy impacts, and responsiveness to changes in economic conditions. The results of the collection will be used to determine trends – establishing statistical models that facilitate prediction of full-year outcomes. No provider’s funding would be affected.
The information required for the IND is based on data obtained from TEOs student management systems. This information is provided to the Ministry once a year to represent student data as at 01 March.
All enrolments whether they have started or not by the specified date (this could include current and future enrolments) made in a TEOs student management system are required to be reported, regardless of the level of study or the funding source.
All TEOs are required to submit the IND return.
