Background

In October 2022, the proposed changes to the Standards for RTOs were released for public consultation with about 900 people participating in online and face-to-face forums, and over 250 online submissions received by DEWR.  Public consultation on the draft documents concluded on 31 January 2023.

Following feedback, the documents were submitted for further drafting.

Here is the proposed timeline moving forward from October 2023


DEWR is motivated to receive further constructive feedback as we head into the Pilot phase of the project.

Input is sought on how RTOs would demonstrate compliance with the draft revised Standards relevant to their operational context.  Feedback can be provided via this link

This session

Skills Education hosted a DEWR update to the VET sector on progress to the draft revised Standards for RTOs.

Hear from the DEWR project team on the proposed updates to the legislative instrument.
