In 2015, ASQA conducted an offshore performance assessment (audit) pilot in order to test the quality of offshore VET, trial the offshore performance assessment process and develop an effective offshore regulatory strategy. The pilot involved site performance assessments of four public providers at a range of locations in China, following negotiation with Chinese authorities. The pilot identified key characteristics and strengths and weakness of offshore VET that will help inform further offshore regulatory activity.
ASQA published its strategic review into international education, Protecting the quality of International VET and English language education on 31 July 2019. Click the link to read the report.

This research makes novel use of large nationally consistent regulatory and enrolment data sets to provide evidence of successful public policy implementation that is approaching the end of the market life cycle. It is argued that policy success is not permanent and should be revisited in light of contemporary economic alternatives to guide future VET policy making.
