Practitioners within the Vocational Education and Training sector must operate within a regulated environment. Knowing what is required by the Standards for RTOs 2015 and how to comply with these requirements is a key factor for sustainable practice.

This webinar will discuss how various compliance aspects can benefit from a ‘black and white’ approach. We acknowledge that while many aspects of compliance are open to interpretation and various shades of grey, we aim to focus on how ‘coloured’ thinking can be used to your advantage.  We will discuss the various thinking styles that may contribute to training and assessment and RTO operations, and how each may influence what must be done to deliver a quality student experience.

Particular emphasis will be given to assessment design and validation – areas in which, according to the National VET Regulator, RTOs most struggle to achieve compliance.

‘For Compliance’s Sake’ is a must for VET compliance staff, instructional designers, assessment specialists and anyone else looking to expand or hone their skills in this area.  Content will apply to any public, private or school-based RTO.

Learning Outcomes
  • Recognise when ‘black and white’ thinking styles can benefit compliance procedures within an RTO
  • Determine whether their RTO could achieve greater compliance with various aspects of the Standards for RTOs 2015 by using a black and white approach
  • Understand different thinking styles, the parts they play in day-to-day RTO business operations, and how different style may affect your own role
  • Understand the value of black and white (and other coloured) thinking when it comes to assessment design and validation
  • Apply the thinking style to compliance related activities
