Work with other regulators

Industry regulators

ASQA aims to improve the quality of outcomes in the VET sector by working closely with industry regulators.  

ASQA develops Memorandums of Understanding with various industry sectors which outline collaboration and information-sharing strategies.  

Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) 

The Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) regulates and assures the quality of Australia’s higher education sector. TEQSA was established by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 and assumed its full regulatory functions in January 2012.

ASQA and TEQSA agreed a Memorandum of Understanding (PDF 810kb), which details how the two regulators are streamlining the national regulatory approach for ‘multisector providers’—providers offering both vocational education and training and higher education.

State regulators in Victoria and Western Australia

ASQA confers with vocational education and training regulators in Victoria and Western Australia on matters that require regulatory consistency.
