The Australian Skills Quality Authority’s new fees are in-place, with increases focused on “providers that require a greater level of regulatory attention and oversight.”
Shame this did not happen before the VET FEE HELP catastrophe.
The new arrangement seems in-line with Valerie Braithwaite’s (ANU) recent review of ASQA’s legislation ( CMM June 26), who found;
“the cost to the registered training organisation of being audited should be less than the benefits gained by the improvement the audit brings to its products. In short, there should be benefits through being given a “health check” by the regulator. … Costs should only increase under conditions where the breaches are more serious and the RTO is unwilling to fix them.”
