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 Registration Authorities and Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2017 (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.
