The Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) has a number of standards related to the continuing registration of Registered Training Organisations (RTOs). Standard 1 mandates suitably skilled trainers and assessors to be engaged to train or assess.
This policy is to ensure that the delivery of the College’s scope of registration (accredited courses and units of competency) incorporate the principles contained in Standard 1 of the RTO Standards (2015), specifically with clauses 1.13, 1.14, 1.15 & 1.16.
The policy relates to all VET units of competency, training package qualifications, and accredited courses delivered by the College or any of its teaching partners.
The College shall ensure compliance with clauses 1.13, 1.14, 1.15 & 1.16 of Standard 1. These procedures shall be detailed in the VET Trainers and Assessors Procedures document.
The College shall only use trainers and assessors who have the qualification specified in Schedule 1 (or demonstrated equivalency).
