The staged implementation is scheduled to be conducted from October through to December 2016 and—following revisions to incorporate the findings of its evaluation—will be rolled out more fully in 2017. The emphasis of the staged implementation is on building a body of practice to test and inform the new audit approach. During the staged implementation process, ASQA will test and evaluate the student-centred audit approach against a number of different audit types and RTO profiles.
A new audit reporting template and other tools will also be tested through the staged implementation and refined based on the outcomes of the staged implementation. If your RTO is selected for an audit as part of the staged implementation process, ASQA will contact you and advise you about the student-centred audit approach.
