Ongoing compliance advice and support for legislative framework

ASQA’s regulations is supported by a comprehensive framework of legislation and standards: 

  • VQF and Standards for RTOs 2015

  • AQTF (Australian Quality Training Framework)

  • VRQA (Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority) -VRQA registered RTOs

  • VET Quality Framework (ASQA registered RTOs)

  • ESOS Act 2000

  • National Code of Practice for Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2017

  • Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS)

  • Higher Education Support Act 2003 - VET FEE-HELP

  • Standards for VET Accredited Courses 2012

As ASQA continually improves how it identifies and targets providers of concern – as discussed in the reporting on purpose 2 – increasingly high numbers of breaches of the required standards are being identified.

Cancellation seeks to remove poor-quality providers and those not interested in the delivery of quality training and assessment from the sector. Suspensions are most typically used where ASQA has concerns about some parts of a provider’s delivery, or where the provider has failed to meet obligations such as fee payment or data submission.
