What is the required staff-to-student ratio?
The required staff-to-student ratio is indicated in Standard 14 of the National Code 2018, which states:
‘The registered provider must have and implement policies and procedures to ensure its staffing resources are adequate and have the capabilities as required by the quality assurance framework applying to the course. Where the course provided by the registered provider is not subject to an appropriate quality assurance framework, the registered provider must have and implement appropriate documented policies and processes for the recruitment, induction, performance assessment and ongoing development of members of staff involved with the recruitment or delivery of education or client services to students.’
The staff-to-student ratio for the teaching of ELICOS should not exceed 1:18 per class.
