The Australian Federal Police (AFP) is warning the public about a complex new international scam targeting the Chinese community in Australia.

ASQA will further enhance its scrutiny of entities seeking to provide nationally-recognised vocational education and training (VET) and English language courses to students in Australia and overseas.

Andrew Scott Reid fabricated four bogus vocational education and training (VET) qualifications for himself and used them in an attempt to gain employment.

ASQA has announced that it will revoke its 1 December 2017 regulatory decision to suspend ten qualifications from the registration of TAFE SA (RTO ID 41026).

ASQA will host 27 face-to-face and web-based briefings during May and June as part of its continued efforts to support the quality of vocational education and training through informing and educating the sector.

ASQA will cancel 432 security and first aid qualifications and statements of attainment issued to 276 individuals.

ASQA has announced its intention to cancel sham security or security-related qualifications and statements of attainment issued by the now de-registered training provider Sage Academy Training Pty Ltd (RTO number 41505, Sage Academy).

ASQA has cancelled the registration of Study Group Australia Pty Limited (RTO number 5806).

ASQA will audit VET Student Loans providers under an enhancement of its partnership with the Australian Government Department of Education and Training.

On Monday 18 December 2017, ASQA agreed to a request from TAFE SA for an extension of time to lodge a reconsideration application to 2 March 2018.
