Quality indicators annual summary

The Data Provision Requirements 2020 require all RTOs registered with ASQA to provide an annual summary report of their performance against learner engagement and employer satisfaction quality indicators.

ASQA has determined that it will not take regulatory action against providers that are unable to submit their 2020 quality indicator data.

Providers are still able to submit their data but will not face any regulatory action for not doing so, for the current reporting period only.

Collect and report quality indicator data

You are required to use the following two questionnaires to collect data on learner engagement and employer satisfaction quality indicators:

You must use one of the following systems to report your learner engagement and employer satisfaction quality indicators to ASQA:

We encourage RTOs to use the Quality indicator annual summary report template. However, submissions using the retired Survey Management, Analysis and Reporting Tool will still be accepted.

The Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) has previously published* the following guides which provide help and advice for RTOs on collecting and reporting quality indicator data: 

*While these documents can be a useful source of information, please note that they predate the most recent review of AQTF, and some information they contain may be outdated. 

Competency completion

With the introduction of national VET reporting for all RTOs, there is no longer a requirement for RTOs to report competency completions via CCOS.

Submit your quality indicator reports

If you choose to submit your quality indicator data reports for 2020, you must do so in full to qidata@asqa.gov.au by close of business on 30 June. We require Quality Indicator data for the previous calendar year (1 January to 31 December).

Failure to submit your quality indicator report will not result in non-compliance with statutory registration requirements, for the current reporting period only. Non-compliance would normally be a potential breach of the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011.
