The number, which is unique to each student, will be used as a key identifier on a student’s records, and will remain with the student throughout his or her education, until reaching the age of 25.
The VSN provides DET with the capability to accurately detect patterns of student movement through, and departure from, the Victorian education and training system. It improves the collection and analysis of timely and accurate data about education in Victoria.
