Goulburn Ovens Institute of TAFE (GOTAFE) is a Registered Training Organisation (TOID 3094) with the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) to deliver National training package qualifications and VET accredited courses to domestic and overseas students.

ASQA re-registration was granted for seven years following a re-registration audit in 2015. A copy of the registration certificate is included here.

The most recent audits of GOTAFE compliance were conducted by ASQA in response to GOTAFE request to provide training programs and to enrol overseas students and to be included on the CRICOS (Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students). In addition a compliance audit was conducted. The arrangements were:

VRQA re-registration audit

Date: August 2019

Qualifications audited: VCAL foundation, intermediate and senior.
GOTAFE is also registered with the Victorian Registration & Qualifications Authority (VRQA) to deliver senior secondary programs in Victoria. The Institute has been re-registered to 31 December 2024 by the VRQA to deliver VCAL, following a registration audit in August 2019. The Institute was required to provide additional documentation to show compliance with Child Safe Standards, building standards, electrical test and tagging, emergency action plan, critical incident plan and student medical conditions management. This resulted in VRQA finding GOTAFE to be compliant with the requirements of Child Safe Standards and the requirements of the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) for authorisation to provide an accredited senior secondary course at five VRQA licenced premises.

GOTAFE undertakes a range of activities for the purpose of continuous improvement in the quality of training and services provided.

Student and employer satisfaction surveys

Many activities involve feedback from key stakeholders, including client satisfaction surveys of students and employers. Quality Indicator surveys* of learner engagement and employer satisfaction are conducted annually and a summary is available here.
