Rigorous regulation from exacting ASQA

After the VET FEE HELP catastrophe, it would be understandable for training regulator the Australian Skills Quality Authority to err on the side of  overly exacting, which is what private training providers fear it is doing. Rod Camm, outgoing head of the Australian Council for Private Education and Training, reports members say ASQA, “has radically shifted to a more adversarial approach and is not willing to facilitate improved provider performance or outcomes.”

“In a general sense, members have concerns about ASQA’s relationship with the industry. Providers are looking for a positive relationship aimed at improving understanding and quality, rather than being seen as waving a ‘big stick’.”
