Fees and charges

Today, the Minister for Employment, Workforce, Skills, Small and Family Business, the Hon Stuart Robert MP, and the Minister for Education and Youth, the Hon Alan Tudge MP, announced that ASQA will extend fee relief for VET providers and accredited course owners until 31 December 2021.


As part of the Australian government financial relief measures announced in April, annual registration charges for 2020-21 are being waived.


ASQA has today announced details about a plan to waive or reimburse some fees and charges, to help mitigate the negative financial impacts of COVID-19 on the VET sector.

The Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business, Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash, and the Minister for Education, the Hon Dan Tehan MP, have announced a package of measures to lift the financial pressures on registered training organisations.

ASQA hosted a webinar on Tuesday 3 December on proposed changes to ASQA fees and charges 2020-21 as part of its consultation with the VET sector.
