One of the top non-compliance at an ASQA Audit is often the Trainers Matrix and this is due to a lack of knowledge on what should be included within the Trainers Matrix and how to ensure that it is compliant. What we often find is that the Trainers Matrix does not sufficiently map the skills and knowledge of the trainer against the units of competency.
In this episode you will learn:
- The importance of Existing Skills and Knowledge and how they should be mapped onto your Trainers Matrix
- Vocational competence
- Experience and Qualification Mapping
- Industry and VET Currency
- Professioanl Development
- Verifying your qualifications and experience
There is a change with how we are regulated, and it is for the better!
As the national VET Regulator, ASQA's role is to ensure quality vocational education and training so that students, employers, the community and governments can have confidence in the integrity of training products issued by you as an RTO.
We are already experiencing a range of changes in how RTOs are being regulated through a range of client Assessments (Audits) this year. It is so refreshing to see the change and how we are improving.
In this episode:
- How ASQA has changed
- The impact it will have on your RTO
- What is the future of ASQA Audits
So, you've decided to launch an RTO.
This is a big journey to go on when you decide you want to start an RTO, And for those that are already in the training industry, you know how difficult it can be to maintain your ongoing compliance.
Starting an RTO is not like most businesses, there is so much more involved with gaining your registration with the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), you need to comply with strict legislation that governs Registered Training Organisations.
In this episode I cover:
- What you need to know about starting an RTO
- What are the ASQA requirements
- What documentation you need to submit
- Understanding the Financial viability requirements
- The best structure for your RTO.
ASQA and the VET Reform
Over the last 10 years we have experienced massive changes within the training industry. Since the inception of ASQA in 2011, we have experienced the highs and lows of regulation, including the pressure on RTOs with over regulation.
The tides are changing, with ASQA taking a whole new approach to how we are regulated. This has been driven by the Joyce Report from 2019 (a Report on Strengthening the VET sector) and the VET Reform.
Exciting times are ahead. Listen to this Podcast to learn more about the future of ASQA and the VET Sector.
