RTO Rectification Services
‘Of the audited providers that completed a rectification process in 2016–17, 46.6 per cent were found to remain non-compliant with the required standards afterward. This is an increase compared to 2015–16, when only 29.1% of audited providers remained non-compliant afterward.
The ‘after rectification’ figure is a more meaningful indicator for ASQA than the level of non-compliance at the time of audit, as it points to a more sustained inability to meet the standards. This increase in the amount of non-compliance found at audit indicates that
ASQA is more effectively identifying, through its risk intelligence, providers that are fundamentally unable to meet the required standards
ASQA’s student-centred audit model, which focuses on evidence of RTO practices and behaviour, is contributing to ASQA identifying greater levels of sustained or significant non-compliance (non-compliance that cannot be easily rectified).
Why you need us for your RTO rectification
ASQA sets clear expectations for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) and course owners to take responsibility for the quality of their qualifications and services through legislation, standards and other requirements. It expects that all RTOs will meet the legislative requirements, the standards nd other guidelines. Accordingly, RTO’s should make sure that their quality processes do not inadvertently fail to meet the standards. In most cases, it is the interpretation of the Standards that cause confusion resulting in non-compliance. If an audit is held and ASQA identifies instances of non-compliance, and these are not rectified within a stated period of 20 days, the RTO may attract a sanction or penalty.
