Guidelines for Conducting a Training Product Review

17, 31 October & 2 November 2017
Sydney, Melbourne & Brisbane

The purpose of conducting an internal review is to assess the RTO’s compliance with the Standards for RTOs 2015 with particular focus on the training product, primarily with Standard 1.

The internal review is an integral part of the RTO’s commitment to continual improvement. These reviews should be systematic and recommended to be conducted on an annual basis.

The summary of findings and rectifications identified should then feed in to the systematic internal audit process that is completed against all standards. The full internal audit process is covered in a separate workshop ‘Suggested Evidence for Audit’.

Key topics covered in the session

  • Standards for RTOs 2015 – Relevant clauses
  • Overview of an internal review process for a training product
  • How it links to the continuous improvement cycle
