|Regulatory decisions update – 25th of August 2017
Cancellation of registration as a provider of vocational education and training (VET) services. ASQA has announced six additional RTOs who have been notified that their registration will be cancelled. ASQA’s decisions will take effect unless the provider seeks a review of ASQA’s decision including via the the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).
Extended transition period for units affected by ‘Deleted’ status issue
ASQA has announced that, a number of ‘Superseded’ and ‘Current’ training products (315 in total) had their status on training.gov.au changed to ‘Deleted’. The ‘Deleted’ status indicates that a training product is no longer current and that it has not been replaced or superseded by another training product. Due to the status being applied retrospectively and to ensure no enrolled students are disadvantaged, ASQA Commissioners have approved an extended transition period of one (additional) year, until 13 June 2018 for the affected units of competency.
International education targeted in strategic review
ASQA has announced that it has made international education one of two target areas over the next 12 months. ASQA will undertake a strategic review of VET and English language education delivery to overseas students.
