NVPDW: Self-Assuring in Practice – Easy Peasey!

16 October 2024
Online via Zoom Webinar

This webinar that forms part of our 2024 National VET PD Week is presented by Maria Langwell (who achieved an average score of 4.3/5 stars).  She will share practical examples and templates of self-assurance activities which may easily be embedded into your RTO’s day-to-day operations.


This webinar provides ‘hands-on’ examples of how a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) may enhance its existing practices and/or introduce new practices to enable a self-assuring RTO, resulting in a stronger student experience.

Self-assuring your RTO should not be a time-consuming ‘add-on’. With the right strategies in place, self-assuring practices can quickly offer a deeper insight into your student and stakeholder’s needs and ensure your RTO stays ‘ahead of the pack’.

Self-assurance covers many facets of an RTO’s business model including how it receives and uses:

  • feedback in all its forms and from a range of stakeholders including students, staff and industry
  • validation of assessments, and
  • audits.

 The presenter will share practical examples and templates of self-assurance activities which may easily be embedded into your RTO’s day-to-day operations.

Key topics covered in this webinar 

  • ASQA’s self-assurance model, principles and drivers, which enable a learning and value-adding institution
  • Self-assuring practices: feedback, validation activities and operational ‘checks and balances’
  • Creating value for all clients and stakeholders through self-assuring analysis
