Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) vision

Friday 19 December 2:41 PM

For students completing Vocation and Education courses such as first aid training, they may not be aware of the regulatory requirements that Registered Training Organisations (RTO’S) are required to meet.

Mr Chris Robinson, the Chief Commissioner for the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) stated that it has been a busy year for ASQA and the wider vocational education and training (VET) sector. During 2014, ASQA has implemented a number of regulatory reform initiatives especially to reduce those RTO’s providing poor quality training providers.

Also new national Standards for RTOs and regulators were released this year. The Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015 will be implemented from 1 January 2015 for prospective RTOs and from 1 April 2015 for existing RTOs. This will certainly help students to receive quality training from RTO’s.

Next year looks to be another busy year for ASQA. In addition to their ongoing focus on removing poor quality training providers from the market, ASQA will also look to implement new and additional ways to help all students receive quality training from every educational provider that they are responsible for.

Allens Training supports the efforts that ASQA are making and congratulate them for their efforts in making education such an important part of Australian life.
