Single Data Return Changes for 2016

23 November 2015

There are a number of Single Data Return-related change initiatives going ahead in 2016. These are being led by the TEC and the Ministry of Education.

This new web page provides an overview of the changes, supporting information and key contacts.

We are bringing forward the final date for submitting updates for Student Achievement Component (SAC) and Youth Guarantee-funded Education Performance Indicators (EPIs) for inclusion in 2015 EPIs to 29 April 2016.

We sent a TEC Now in October 2015 with a deadline date of 8 April 2016. After feedback from the sector, we have extended the deadline to give you more time in 2016 to adapt to the change in timeline.

Please contact the Sector Helpdesk if you have any queries.
