The Audit tool (PDF 542kb) is a resource used by ASQA auditors to:
- guide the collection of relevant evidence against each part of the National Code of Practice for Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2018 (National Code), and
- provide a picture of what compliance with each standard looks like.
Your organisation may choose to use the audit tool as a point of reference when actively monitoring compliance (e.g. conducting a self assessment) or when preparing for an audit.
The audit tool provides a non-exhaustive list of factors your ASQA auditor will take into consideration. However, the included evidence guidance is a guide only; there may be other factors an auditor takes into consideration. The overall finding for a standard may not necessarily be ‘compliant’ even if all boxes have been ticked to indicate ‘Yes’.
ASQA does not record the details of non-compliance in the audit tool, which is an internal resource. Findings of non-compliance are recorded in the audit report, a copy of which is issued to the provider.
