The Australian Skills Quality Authority’s VET accredited course template has been revised to enable prospective and existing course owners to develop units of competency in-line with the requirements for the new Training Package Standards.
The template can be accessed from the ASQA website under Forms.
All units of competency developed for inclusion in an accredited course after 1 July 2015 must be developed to meet these requirements.
The template has also been amended to reference foundation skills not employability skills.
All courses currently with ASQA for processing or being developed that are nearing completion can be submitted to ASQA and will be evaluated against the requirements of the Training Package Development Handbook.
ASQA is currently developing a resource to assist course developers in the development of a course accreditation application.
