Student Enrolment

Certain information is required from students when they enrol and are formally admitted to a course of study.

Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF)

Before the introduction of the Standards for RTOs 2015, the AQTF outlined compliance requirements for the registration and operation of RTOs in Australia. Now, the AQTF (in conjunction with the ‘2016 VRQA Guidelines for VET Providers’) is only used by RTOs under the jurisdiction of the VRQA.

Access and Equity

‘Access and Equity’ is a principle designed to encourage all learners and ensure they are given equal opportunities to training and its outcomes.

State-based Funding

Funding is available from State and Territory governments to approved RTOs for delivery of VET.


Checklists can be designed for almost any purpose and are effective tools for recording assessment judgements.

Student Files

RTOs must collect and keep information on their students’ learning activities. Considerations include the creation, maintenance, storage and access requirements associated with those files.

Research Organisations

There are key organisations that research activity within, and about, education and VET in Australia.

Unique Student Identifier (USI)

Students undertaking nationally recognised training must have a USI in order to receive their qualification or Statement of Attainment, and RTOs must meet the requirements of the USI scheme.

Continuous Improvement

RTOs should have a system for how they will pinpoint and action opportunities for continuous improvement of their operations.

Sales and Marketing

RTOs must balance their sales and growth needs with specific requirements and allowable practices related to the marketing of their training products and services.

VET Acronyms

The VET sector makes use of myriad acronyms to refer to specific terms and components of the system; find them here.


The Australian Vocational Education and Training Management Information Statistical Standard (AVETMISS) outlines the format required for the submission of descriptive data about students and their study activities.
