Documenting the Volume of Learning in the Training and Assessment Strategy

The Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), which is part of the VET Quality Framework, provides a guide to the Volume of Learning required for each qualification type. Additionally, Clause 1.2 of the Standards for RTOs 2015 requires the RTO to determine the amount of training they will provide to each learner. When developing the Training and Assessment Strategy, careful consideration needs to be given to the background of each cohort when determining  the amount of training as a component of the overall Volume of Learning.
