VET Manager Professional Development Program – Stage 2

VET Manager Professional Development Program
Stage 2

Stage 2 of CCA’s VET Manager professional development program focuses on the elements of quality delivery in compliance.

Compliance in a Student-Centred Framework: Program Overview

Guided by the ASQA student-centred approach to audit, this customised program will assist community NFP VET providers to develop and refine holistic models of quality assurance and compliance specific to their organisations.

CCA has designed the program to ensure specific concerns are raised and worked through. Participants will have the opportunity to develop and/or implement refined approaches within their RTOs. Webinars on particular topics may be provided at a later stage.

The first workshop (9 March 2018) looked at the “big picture”, discussing recent developments in VET and audit practice, including the new ASQA User Guide for RTOs.

The second face-to-face workshop will drill down to specifics, based on VET Managers' concerns identified in Day 1.

The workshop will cover

  • Industry updates: provided by CCA and the Department of Industry
  • Practical strategies for maintaining and documenting industry and vocational currency
  • A session devoted to the evaluation and contextualisation of commercial resources. This will focus on qualifications commonly delivered across colleges and on training resources identified by participants.
  • Developing a validation plan
  • Q&A on areas of compliance concern: where possible flagged ahead of time.
