ASQA Requirements when Selling an RTO

With effect from 31 October, 2019, ASQA, the national regulator for Australia’s vocational education and training sector, introduced some changes.

  • Increased evidentiary requirements for providers who change 50% or more of their ownership over a 12 month period to demonstrate their compliance with the relevant regulatory framework, including:
    • The completion of a Financial Viability Risk Assessment tool and
    • The completion of a self-assessment tool which requires the submission of supporting evidence.
  • The conduct of a compliance audit. For providers registered under the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act, 2011, this audit will be chargeable
  • Training providers registered as CRICOS providers must notify ASQA of any change of ownership as soon as practicable prior to the change occurring
  • Increased scrutiny on providers who have changed ownership in the 12 months prior.
