ASQA Registration and Delegation

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.

In accordance with the provisions of the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011 (NVR Act), GOTAFE’s application to ASQA for registration renewal in 2022 has been granted for a further 7 years (30 June 2029). A copy of the final Quality Self-Assurance Review Summary Report is available here. A copy of GOTAFE’s Certificate of Registration is included here.

As a Registered Training Organisation, GOTAFE is committed to ensuring compliance with the VET Quality Framework by actively managing and monitoring our activities to ensure that quality and compliance are maintained at all times and across all of our operations.

The VET Quality Framework comprises the following components:

  • the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015
  • the Fit and Proper Person Requirements
  • the Financial Viability Risk Assessment Requirements
  • the Data Provision Requirements
  • the Australian Qualifications Framework.

ASQA has granted GOTAFE Delegation to manage the Institute’s list of Training Products (accredited courses) on its Scope of Registration until 30 June 2023.

DET business process audits

GOTAFE is regularly audited by the Department of Education & Training (DET) appointed auditors to ensure compliance against our State VET Funding Agreement. The latest BPA audit in November 2021 examined business processes relating to training services with very few exceptions found and zero non-compliances.

GOTAFE Quality Education Self-Assurance

GOTAFE is committed to quality education and training, and follows rigorous self-assurance activities described in our Education Self-Assurance Framework to ensure continuous improvement for the best student outcomes.

Student and employer satisfaction surveys

Continuous improvement includes gathering feedback from key stakeholders, including client satisfaction surveys of students and employers. GOTAFE conduct annual Quality Indicator surveys of learner and employer satisfaction and report findings to our National Regulator, ASQA. Surveys are also conducted by DET (VETStat surveys) and NCVER (national Student Outcomes Surveys).
