The Data Provision Requirements 2012 requires all registered training organisations (RTOs) registered with ASQA to provide an annual summary report of their performance against the learner engagement and employer satisfaction quality indicators to ASQA.
This quality indicator focuses on the extent to which learners engage in activities that are likely to promote high-quality skill outcomes. It includes learner perceptions of the quality of their competency development and the support they receive from their RTOs. The source of data to measure this indicator is a survey called the Learner Questionnaire. RTOs must gather and analyse this data each year.
This quality indicator focuses on employer evaluation of learner competency development and the relevance of learner competencies for work and further training, as well as employer evaluation of the overall quality of the training and assessment. The source of data to measure this indicator is a survey called the Employer Questionnaire. RTOs must gather and analyse this data each year.
You must use one of the following systems to report your learner engagement and employer satisfaction quality indicators to ASQA:
- Survey Management, Analysis and Reporting Tool (no longer available for download)
- ASQA's Quality Indicator annual summary report template (DOC).
With the introduction of national VET reporting for all RTOs, there is no longer a requirement for RTOs to report competency completions via CCOS.
You must submit your quality indicator data reports in full to qidata [at] asqa.gov.au by close of business 30 June each year. Quality Indicator data is required for previous calendar year (1 January to 31 December).
Failure to do so will result in your RTO not complying with its statutory registration requirements and potentially constitute a breach of the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011.
