ASQA Annual Declaration of Compliance is due on 17 May 2023

The ASQA Annual Declaration of Compliance submission due for all RTOs is by 17 May 2023. This process is a formal declaration to both your organisation and to ASQA that you are confident you have the systems and processes in place to assure the quality of your outcomes for students and industry. 

ASQA encourages providers to take this opportunity to thoroughly assess their operations against the Standards and registration requirements to assure themselves that they are effective in monitoring and meeting these requirements and can identify and address potential or emerging risks, as well as areas for improvement. ASQA’s online Self-Assessment Tool is available to assist you with this process.

Return to ESOS course delivery requirements from 1 July 2023

Providers delivering courses to overseas students studying in Australia on a student visa are required to have returned to compliance with face-to-face delivery requirements from 1 July 2023.

Providers should be well advanced in their planning and transition in order to comply with these settings. Providers should plan for implementation of a return to face to face delivery requirements as per the National Code and the ELICOS Standards 2018. This includes communication to students associated with the return to compliance and ensuring delivery locations are updated.

Please note that ASQA will be monitoring providers’ actions, with a particular focus on seeing providers demonstrate good practice surrounding governance and decision-making and transition planning to support these changes, and we may request information about a provider’s return to compliance strategy and implementation.

Monitoring and practice related to education agents

Delivery to international students, including unethical practices of third-party education agents, continues to be a regulatory priority for AQSA and a focus across government. Training providers who deliver Australian VET qualifications to international students must meet their legislative obligations under the ESOS Act and National Code to not engage in misleading or deceptive conduct when recruiting students or providing courses and not provide false or misleading information or guarantee a migration outcome in any marketing activities. Providers must also ensure that their marketing and promotion of courses and education services is not false or misleading and is consistent with Australian Consumer Law.
