ASQA releases 2021-2022 Corporate Plan
The Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) has published its Corporate Plan 2021–22, which sets out the national vocational education and training (VET) regulator’s strategic direction for the next four years.
ASQA’s Chief Executive Officer Saxon Rice said the plan outlines the agency’s focus on best-practice regulation of Australia’s VET sector.
“The corporate plan frames our commitment to working together with stakeholders to address risks and ensure quality training outcomes. This partnership approach is about maximising stakeholder confidence in the integrity of national qualifications issued by training providers.”.
The Corporate Plan 2021–22 sets ASQA’s strategic direction for the next four years and the key activities and performance metrics that will support ASQA to track our efforts and achievements, Ms Rice said.
The plan demonstrates the ongoing shift in ASQA’s regulatory posture, away from input and compliance controls to a focus on self-assurance and quality outcomes. This is enabled by an enhanced regulatory operating model, including an expanded use of education as a regulatory tool, Ms Rice said.
“This plan reflects the priorities set by Government – achieving our purpose by positioning ASQA as an effective modern regulator that supports continuous improvement in training provision across the VET sector”.
