Training and Assessment Strategies (TAS)

A TAS is a framework that identifies the structure for the way in which a training product is delivered to learners and the way assessment will occur.

Delivery Basics

‘Delivery Basics’ gives some short, sharp explanations relating to training, assessment, and associated components – including some of the stipulations of the Standards for RTOs 2015.

Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA)

The Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) is the national regulator for Australia’s VET sector.

Registered Training Organisations (RTOs)

A Registered Training Organisation (RTO) is any training provider listed on the national register to provide specific training delivery and/or assessment services in VET.


Moderation is an activity aimed at bringing assessment judgements into alignment and is a quality control process.

Core Skills for Work Framework (CSfW)

The CSfW is a framework that describes the non-technical skills and capabilities which are considered essential for successful participation in work.


There are a variety of ways RTOs may be funded for the delivery of VET in Australia. Government funding is one avenue for RTO income.

Training Packages

It is essential that RTO staff know how to access information about relevant Training Packages, so that they can stay up-to-date with the requirements for training and assessment.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

The aim of RPL is to formally recognise existing competencies without having to go through the complete training process.

System Basics

‘System Basics’ gives a break-down of the interconnected functions, frameworks and entities in Australia’s VET sector.

Transition Arrangements

There are certain RTO activities that must be completed in set timeframes when a training product is superseded, removed or deleted from the national VET register.

Assessment Tools

An ‘assessment tool’ is defined as both “the instrument(s) and procedures used to gather and interpret evidence of competence”.
