Focus Week: Third-party arrangements

25 June 2018

This webinar is one of five available during Velg Training's dedicated Focus Week - RTO Compliance. The webinars that form this Focus Week are designed to focus particular attention on how an RTO’s compliance is both developed and administered, and to foster continuous improvement of RTO practices.

About this webinar

This webinar focuses on Clause 2.3, 2.4, 4.1, 5.2 and 8.2 of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations as they relate to the delivery of services through a third-party arrangement. Third-party arrangements are absolutely allowable under the RTO Standards, but are they worth it and what are the risks involved?

 During this webinar, Joe will explore these questions and help participants to understand what a third-party arrangement is and isn’t. We will talk about how to set these arrangements up properly to realise the commercial benefits and to protect your compliance. The session will focus on the mandatory inclusions within a third-party agreement and the monitoring arrangements necessary to ensure a healthy partnership.

Key topics covered within webinar

  • Introduction to third-party arrangements
  • The different types of third-party arrangements
  • Considering opportunities and risks
  • Reporting and compliance obligations
  • Third-party agreements - Mandatory inclusions
  • Establishing and implementing monitoring arrangements
