About training package assurance
ASQA is the independent body responsible for training package assurance from 1 January 2023. The function will assess training packages for compliance against standards and policies set by Skills Ministers, delivering:
- enhanced transparency
- high quality
ensuring that Australia’s training packages meet the needs of employers and students.
Assurance and education
The function will create a robust approval process to streamline the development and endorsement of training packages so that students, employers, governments, and the community have confidence in the integrity of national qualifications issued by the VET sector.
ASQA's training product assurance body has 2 key functions:
- Training product assurance: a compliance assessment of training products prior to recommending for endorsement
- Capacity building and education: providing guidance and education to Industry Clusters to build their capacity and drive the continuous improvement of the training product development system.
ASQA is engaging with the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations (DEWR) and broader stakeholders to develop and implement the future-state model for this assurance function in line with ASQA's strategic directions.
