Collection methods:Help on this term

Operationally, the non-school qualification reported for a person is in any field of education except General Primary and Secondary Education Programmes. Data are obtained by direct question and often sequenced to follow a direct question on 'Highest year of school completed'. The question is worded in terms of qualifications attained.

Excludes partial completion of or current participation in a course of study and Statements of attainment awarded for partial completion of a course of study at a particular level.

Qualifications generally associated with school education, such as the Senior Secondary Certificate of Education, are excluded from this data element even if they are awarded as the result of study at a non-school institution (ABS 2001).
