Review of Quality Assurance into VictoriaReview of Quality Assurance in Victoria's VET system

Recently there have been growing concerns among students and industry with the quality of training in Victoria. On 20 February 2015, the Government commissioned an external review of quality assurance in Victoria’s VET system (the Review), to help restore public confidence in the quality and value of VET in Victoria. Employer groups, industry bodies, trade unions, VET provider peak bodies and relevant government agencies were included in the consultations.

The Government released the Review report on 29 June 2015, alongside a Government Response, and has accepted all 19 of its recommendations.

The Review calls for an immediate, targeted blitz of the current system and identified four areas through which improved VET quality assurance will be achieved:

  1. prioritising quality in determining eligibility to deliver government funded training;
  2. improving key factors in a student’s training experience, such as the duration of training and the skills and abilities of trainers;
  3. actively monitoring and managing the performance of contracted training providers; and
  4. empowering students and employers to drive quality through informed choices and consumer protection.

The Response provides an overview of how the Government plans to implement the Review's recommendations. You can download a copy of the Review and the Response from the Department of Education and Training website.
