ASQA launches videos to support sector
The Australian Skills Quality Authority has collaborated with stakeholders across the vocational education and training sector to produce videos that provide answers to common regulatory questions.
ASQA today launched a video explaining the audit process, which will be followed next week by a video on assessment-related questions.
The videos feature round-table discussions involving ASQA auditors and VET leaders – Andrew Shea from the Independent Tertiary Education Council Australia (ITECA), Nita Schultz from the Victorian TAFE Association and Michelle Simpson from Community Colleges Australia (CCA).
ASQA Chief Commissioner and CEO, Saxon Rice, said the initiative reflected the authority’s role as the national regulator for VET to support providers in understanding ASQA’s compliance expectations.
“ASQA is committed to enhancing its educative role by making regulatory information available to the VET sector in ways that are easier to access,” she said.
“We’ve listened to our stakeholders and are rolling out video content aimed at explaining regulatory processes in a conversational format.
“I’d like to thank Andrew, Nita and Michelle for taking time out of their busy schedules to help make these videos.
“I hope RTO leaders and their staff find them useful and we welcome feedback so that we can continue to improve our support to the sector.”
The video on what to expect at audit is available at full length and also in stand-alone chapters. It is also available as an audio file for those who prefer podcasts.
The video on assessment will be available next week.
