|Hello and welcome VET News,
This is the first VET News for 2022. Apologies for the late start but we are back on track and soon hope to get back to a twice monthly issue. Like many of you, I suspect, I (and my entire family) got COVID over the holidays. Needless to say that my holiday was not the blissful rest that I wanted and/or needed. But, no matter, I am grinding on into the start of 2022 with soldier like perseverance.
2022 should be an exciting year. We have a recovering economy creating new opportunities for the training sector, returning international students, we have new RTO standards being released at some point, change is on the horizon to AVETMISS reporting with the expected VET Data Streaming initiative, new ASQA fee structure, more training package updates, new ASQA self-assurance model (maybe!), new quality indicator reporting (maybe!), new qualification framework (maybe!), new training package development arrangements, change, adapt, change, overcome, change, realign, change. The only thing that is constant is change. Go the VET sector!!
Please note the articles in this VET News about the very soon approaching ASQA mandatory reporting requirements. These include the final AVETMISS report which is due no later than Monday next week (28th Feb). I know our client support team has been working with our many RTO Data Cloud clients to finalise and submit their reports already. Do not leave this to the last minutes because there will be errors that need to be resolved and it is best to get onto this early. The other mandatory report that is due by the 31st March is the annual declaration on compliance that is required by all RTOs. If you are the nominated person, you will have now received an email with a link to access and complete the declaration. Make sure it is submitted before the due date otherwise you may receive a fine.
Finally, a quick plug for our recent article. Have you ever considered your options when enrolling students? Enrolment models are tricky. They are influenced by many factors such as the type of course being delivered, the target learner, resourcing and many more. Late last year, I published an article on Enrolment Models and Considerations and invite you to take a look and see if there are possible improvements that you could make with your enrolment pathway Click Here.
