As part of Velg Training’s vision, to educate, inspire and empower Australia's VET community, the Validation Directory allows RTOs to simply search for other RTOs who have opted into the program with a similar scope and validation requirements.
The Velg Training VET Directory is a searchable database of organisations and consultants that specialise in Vocational Education and Training (VET) products and services. Our aim is to provide a resource for finding a wide range of products that can be browsed by specific search parameters.

|10.15am - 11.00am(AEST)||Bite Sized Self-Assessment Approach|
As the Manager of an RTO, your role oftentimes feels ‘burdened’ with the heaviness of ongoing self-assessment against compliance requirements. Identifying the risks of non-compliance in an RTO are a fundamental part of any RTO’s heartbeat! Being aware of and understanding where risks within an RTO lie is business critical and a key component of your day-to-day working life. This session will share ideas about how to undertake independent and transparent self-assessments on both an RTO’s practices and on oneself, in manageable ‘pieces’.Maria will walk you through how to interpret risk management in an easy to apply way,and explore the ways to assess, record outcomes and the importance of informing the CEO of any RTO risks.

|11.30am - 12.15pm(AEST)||Arming Yourself with a Plan of Action to Rectify|
Once self-assessment has occurred, processes and practices may have been identified that inform that rectifications are required and/or opportunities for continuous improvement can be utilised. So how do you prioritise and plan for action when it comes to these identified issues? This session will explore an action-planning process that uses a risk-based approach, heavily informed by the identification of any non-compliances that have an impact on past, or potential impact on future learners. Angela will discuss how to approach an implementation plan that clearly identifies the what needs to be done, who will do it, how will it be done and when.

|1.15pm - 2.00pm(AEST)||Getting Staff on Board the Compliance Bus|
Whilst the outcomes of a self-assessment will trigger a compliance ‘rush’, compliance shouldn’t be the object of our function. Rather it should be the result of implementing robust systems and great learning and assessment experiences. However, RTO managers regularly struggle with ensuring that staff understand the importance of consistency in these areas and report that their teams are not always enthusiastic about doing what is necessary to maintain quality. So how do you get the staff on board the Compliance Bus and to that quality destination? In this webinar, Marc will discuss how to build buy-in and will share strategies and techniques that can be used to support a culture of quality. Further to this, he will provide advice on how to embed compliance as part of ongoing practice and troubleshoot how to manage the behaviours of those who miss the bus!

It will encourage attendees to think about the role RTO Managers play in ensuring that self-assessment systems and processes are in place and how evidence of rectifications that have occurred, are important when it comes to the CEO submitting the Declaration.
