VET Quality Framework
The VET Quality Framework is aimed at achieving greater national consistency in the way providers are registered and monitored and in how standards in the vocational education and training (VET) sector are enforced.
The VET Quality Framework comprises:
Standards for VET Accredited Courses
In addition to the VET Quality Framework, there are also Standards for VET Accredited Courses.
The Standards for VET Accredited Courses apply to all courses regulated by ASQA, including those courses that were accredited by referring state and territory course accreditation bodies prior to the introduction of the new national arrangements.

While all the new standards and requirements (the Standards for NVR Registered Training Organisations, the Fit and Proper Person Requirements, the Financial Viability Risk Assessment Requirements and the Data Provision Requirements) under the VET Quality Framework are consistent with those that have previously existed, there are some small changes.
These new national arrangements for ASQA applicants/RTOs introduce some new terminology. For instance, the VET Quality Framework replaces references to the Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF). The requirements also recognise ASQA as the body responsible for registration and compliance arrangements.
