The Standards for VET Accredited Courses 2012 require a course developer to provide:
- evidence of an industry need and
- supporting evidence that industry consultation and validation of course content have taken place during course development and review stages of ASQA’s course accreditation process.
ASQA has developed an Industry consultation form (DOC) to assist course developers in meeting this requirement. The form consists of two parts:
- the first part is to be completed by the stakeholder engaged and requires general information about that stakeholder and their responses to questions about the proposed course. ASQA will use the responses in its assessment to determine the suitability and validity of industry consultation.
- the second part—attachment one and two—is to be completed by the course developer and circulated to industry representatives providing an overview of the proposed course information.
An example of how to complete attachments 1 and 2 of the Industry consultation form can be viewed online.
This form should be submitted to ASQA by the course developer when submitting an application for initial and/or renewal of course accreditation.
