Amendments to NVETR Act 2011

On 16 March 2015 legislative amendments were made to the National Vocational and Education Training Regulator (NVETR) Act 2011 to improve training quality and target unscrupulous VET providers.  The amendments to the National Vocational and Education Training Regulator (NVETR) Act 2011 will require anyone marketing a VET course, including brokers and other third parties, to clearly identify which registered training organisation (RTO) is providing the qualification.

Senator the Hon Simon Birmingham, Assistant Minister for Education and Training, said this will enable ASQA to take action against an RTO, where it, or its marketing agent or broker, fail to provide clear information to a prospective student about the qualification they are signing up for, where the training will be undertaken, how long the course will take, what support services are available and the associated costs.
