Why do we need to develop a training and assessment strategy? In this lesson, we’ll look at the legislative and regulatory reasons that RTOs must have training and assessment strategies (TASs) in place. Including why it’s important to liaise with industry partners, clients and internal stakeholders, as well as the need to maintain compliance with a myriad of regulatory requirements.
Below are some of the resources referred to throughout the video.
1.Industry representatives must be engaged as this is prescribed in the RTO standards 2015 under these sections:
1.5. The RTO’s training and assessment practices are relevant to the needs of industry and informed by industry engagement.
1.6. The RTO implements a range of strategies for industry engagement and systematically uses the outcome of that industry engagement to ensure the industry relevance of:
- its training and assessment strategies, practices and resources; and
- the current industry skills of its trainers and assessors.
2. Determining the transition requirements for RTOs is outlined in this ASQA link.
3. The amount of training required is discussed in detail on the ASQA website here: https://www.asqa.gov.au/resources/guides/guide-determining-amount-training
4. Determining and recording training and assessor qualifications is prescribed in the standards in sections 1.13 – 1.24. You can access the RTO standards here.
