ASQA Information Sessions on New Standards
Early this month, Minister Ian Macfarlane announced details of 27 information sessions to be hosted by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) in November. These sessions have been designed to coincide with the implementation of new National Standards from 1 January 2015 for new RTOs and 1 April 2015 for existing RTOs.
These full-day, interactive information sessions are targeted at CEOs and Training Managers and will provide guidance on the new standards and how ASQA will regulate against them. In addition, workshopping sessions will be held on key topics such as assessment and marketing. More information can be found here.
In response to feedback received, ASQA is also seeking expressions of interest in targeted information sessions for RTO consultants and other VET sector stakeholders. Depending on interest, the sessions would be held in the week commencing 1 December 2014.
