In my capacity as CEO of Vivacity, I have been coaching and consulting the training industry since 2009, prior to that owning and operating my own Registered Training Organisation (RTO).
During this time, my team and I have experienced the highs and lows of running an RTO and as you may guess, an Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) audit is generally the lowest, most frustrating and time consuming part, which is why I have written this eBook.
Following is a snapshot of the three top non-compliances that have not only been identified by ASQA, but what we have experienced with our clients firsthand during audits, both internal audits and ASQA audits.
Running an RTO is hard work but can seem even harder when you need to provide evidence of compliance at an ASQA audit, so let us identify how you can minimise the risks of non-compliance at your next ASQA audit.
1. Training and Assessment Strategies
Having an effective Training and Assessment Strategy (TAS), that truly reflects your delivery and assessment, is crucial within your RTO. Your TAS is not just an audit tool, it is your roadmap for how your RTO strategically delivers their training and assessment based on data that they have collected to address industry and student needs. Discover the key requirements of your TAS and how to write a tool that is not only compliant but will provide a guide to your trainers and industry on how you deliver and assess.
2. Trainers & Assessors
Any RTO would know it is crucial to have industry experienced trainers who are passionate about learning, but unfortunately ensuring that your Trainers meet the requirements of the Standards is a consistent non-compliance due to lack of understanding of the evidence required. Learn the key components of a staff matrix and what trainers MUST do to ensure their currency with both Vocational Education and Training (VET) and their industry sector.
3. Assessment Tools
ASQA has identified that the most common non-compliance at audit is assessment tools. The implementation of compliant assessment tools is vital for ensuring that students are assessed as possessing all required skills and knowledge. Learn about the common causes of non-compliances with assessment tools and what you can do to improve your assessment tools.
