ASQA is changing, and our website is too. The most up to date information on our reforms and approach to regulation can be found on our regulatory practice page. We appreciate your patience as we complete a thorough review of our website during April. If you have any feedback, please contact us.

ASQA publishes distance learning guidance

Today, ASQA has published a new website section to present compliance guidance for providers offering distance learning options.

The current COVID-19 pandemic has meant that many VET providers have begun implementing distance learning techniques (including online delivery) as a way of continuing to provide services.

ASQA is supportive of these adaptive techniques and does not intend to pursue regulatory action against providers taking adaptive measures when impacted by COVID-19, providing outcomes maintain the integrity of the VET course.

Please note that this section is currently a beta document. We have published these pages earlier than normal in order to support the needs of providers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Standard consultation with internal and external stakeholders has yet to occur, meaning the content has yet to be completely finalised. If you have feedback or notice any issues with the content, please let us know at
