CONSULTATION COMMENCES ON REVISED ASQA FEES AND CHARGES
Monday, August 21 2017
The Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) will this week commence consultation with the vocational education and training (VET) sector on a proposed schedule of revised fees and charges to come into effect from 1 January 2018. Assistant Minister for Vocational Education and Skills, Karen Andrews, said the proposed fees and charges would provide an additional incentive for registered training organisations (RTOs) to maintain their compliance with the VET Quality Framework. The simplified fees and charges that ASQA are proposing are structured in a way that provides cost reductions for RTOs that demonstrate a high degree of compliance, Minister Andrews said.
