About us

Our expertise in developing resources and access to industry professionals is what sets us apart. We started with audit and compliance support and developed into publishers for the simple reason that we couldn’t find any compliant learning or assessment resources in the market. Our resources have been tried, tested and developed by Industry experts.
Our resources are used by the school, VET Sector and Higher Education providers worldwide. CAQA Publications develops quality solutions to provide learners with real positive outcomes. Our interactive learning solutions integrate trustworthy content, award-winning technology, outstanding support and competitive rates.

Third-Party Arrangements - What does this mean for your RTO?

ASQA has published an updated guide on third-party arrangements that will come into effect from 1 September 2019 for new third-party arrangements and 1 November 2019 for existing arrangements.

If you have an existing third-party arrangement, you should have already received an email from ASQA with information about the new requirements and the transition period.

What do you need to know?

ASQA has provided a fact sheet - third party arrangements, which available by clicking on this link.  It discusses the changes and what RTO’s need to know.

What you can do:

  • An RTO can engage another RTO under a third party arrangement to deliver training and/or conduct assessment on their behalf, as long as:

    • the third party RTO has the relevant course on scope. 

  • An RTO can engage a non-RTO (either a natural person or legal entity) under a third party arrangement to deliver training and/or conduct assessment on their behalf, as long as:

    • this is done entirely in the RTO’s name and on the RTO’s behalf.

  • Trainers and/or assessors engaged by an RTO as an employee or contractor can deliver training and assessment for the RTO without being subject to the requirements in the Standards for RTOs that govern third party arrangements.

  • Services other than the delivery of training and conduct of assessment can be delivered using third party arrangements, providing these comply with the requirements of the NVR Act and the Standards for RTOs.

What you cannot do:

  • An RTO cannot engage a non-RTO third party to provide training and/or assessment for ‘VET courses of concern’ without prior written approval from ASQA.

  • An RTO cannot use a third party arrangement to avoid responsibility for compliance with the NVR Act or the Standards for RTOs and is wholly responsible for all services provided on its behalf.

  • An RTO cannot engage another RTO to deliver a VET course on its behalf, unless the third party RTO has that course on scope.

  • A non-RTO third party cannot offer to provide or provide a VET course under its own name. That is, a third party cannot:

    • advertise, offer to provide or provide a VET course in its own name

    • issue qualifications or statements of attainment in its own name or with its logo included.

In addition, ASQA have also provided a new General Direction - third-party arrangements for training and or assessment of VET courses, which you can find by clicking on the link.

This General Direction provides clarity and guidance on third-party arrangements permitted under the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011 (the NVR Act).  It is a condition of registration that an ASQA registered RTO must comply with any such General Direction.

ASQA requires all RTO’s entering into a third-party arrangement to have a written agreement.  The Standards for RTOs require you to notify ASQA within 30 days of your RTO entering into, or cancelling, a written agreement with a third party.

If you have any concerns or questions, please contact ASQA at; enquiries@asqa.gov.au
