Legislative and Vocational Education and Training Regulatory Requirements for eLearning in Australia

Here’s a breakdown of the key points to consider when developing eLearning content for nationally recognised vocational education and training (VET) in Australia:

1. Nationally Recognised Training Products (NRTPs):


2. Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF):

  • The eLearning content should contribute to the attainment of qualifications at a specific AQF level. The AQF sets national standards for qualifications across different education sectors


3. Intellectual Property (IP), Copyright, Attribution and Licensing:

  • When using text, images, or other creative elements, ensure you have the proper permissions.
  • Understand copyright laws and consider using resources with Creative Commons licenses or royalty-free image libraries.
  • Always attribute sources appropriately.
  • These aspects are crucial for ethical design and development of eLearning resources.


4. Statutory Education Licence (SEL):

  • The Copyright Agency administers the SEL, which allows educational institutions (including Registered Training Organisations – RTOs) to reproduce and communicate copyright material for educational purposes
  • Check if the eLearning content falls under the scope of the SEL and ensure compliance with its terms.


5. Tailoring to Target Groups:

  • Develop eLearning content that caters to the specific needs, learning styles, and prior knowledge of the target learner group within the VET sector.
  • This may involve making the content accessible for learners with disabilities.


6. Engaging with Industry and Ensuring Industry Relevance:

  • Collaborate with industry experts and stakeholders to ensure the eLearning content reflects current industry practices, knowledge, and skills.
  • This strengthens the relevance and employability value of the training.

Following these guidelines will ensure your eLearning content meets legislative and regulatory requirements, is learner-centred, and aligns with industry needs, resulting in a valuable training experience for VET students.
