Self-Assurance and its Impact on Your Approach to Compliance and Quality

24 January 2023
ONLINE via Zoom Webinar

The co-designed working model for self-assurance has been recently released by ASQA and it highlights four foundational elements for self assurance/continuous improvement activities:

  • leadership and governance

  • student engagement and support

  • industry and community engagement

  • staff capability and development

The goal is to give providers the tools and motivation to measure and improve their own results, as well as to detect and deal with new risks.
Providers do, however, "have the opportunity to choose the mechanisms they use to self-assure based on what suits their organisation."


How 'confident' , i.e. self-assured, are you about the VET environment you work in?

Do you have the tools you need to monitor performance

and find ways to improve it in a structured way?

Are you looking for ideas for your RTO's chosen mechanism?

As an RTO, you already have systems and processes in place to make sure that you stay compliant. These can be a big part of your self-assurance practices.

f you are already a compliant RTO, you are at least 70% of the way to having your education and training management systems recognised around the world.
(75% for CRICOS Compliant RTOs)

There is a compliant and quality solution to self-assurance that aligns the Standards for RTOs 2015, the International Quality Standards ISO9001:2015
and AS ISO 21001:2019 Management Systems for Educational Organisations.

In this webinar, you will learn about one way you can make sure that your organisation embraces and adopts systems and processes that will ensure compliance and quality outcomes.

Join John Price and Rodney Cryer from for a discussion about self-assurance, how it affects your approach to compliance and quality, and the benefits of developing and implementing a solution that not only meets compliance requirements but also showcases your existing quality systems internationally.
