What are the national standards?
The national standards are a legislative instrument that forms part of the VET quality framework. The aim of the standards is to:
- set out the requirements that an organisation must meet in order to function as an RTO
- ensure that training products delivered by these RTOs meet the requirements of their respective training packages or VET-accredited courses and provide the opportunity for employment and further study
- ensure that RTOs operate ethically and with due consideration of their training participants and the organisation’s own needs.
