The Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) advises that it has recently made the following regulatory decisions:
Cancellation of registration as a provider of vocational education and training (VET) services:
- SDCA Pty Ltd (RTO 21551) trading as Melbourne College of Professional Therapists. Decision to take effect from 10 October 2016.
- IILM Pty Ltd (RTO 41258) trading as International Institute of Leadership and Management. Decision to take effect from 10 October 2016.
- GA & MM Pty Ltd (RTO 40841) trading as Quality Education Training. Decision to take effect from 10 October 2016.
ASQA – the national vocational education and training (VET) regulator – has taken these decisions following regulatory scrutiny of each training provider. ASQA contends that each provider has not operated consistently with the requirements of the VET Quality Framework, which all registered training organisations are required to satisfy as a condition of registration.
Training providers subject to an adverse regulatory decision have the right to have the decision reviewed. A provider may, in certain circumstances, apply to have ASQA itself reconsider its decision. In all cases, providers can apply to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) to have ASQA’s decision reviewed. More information about review options is available on the ASQA website.
During a review or reconsideration process, the provider may seek a stay of the decision or an extension of the date the decision takes effect which permits the provider to continue to operate until the review process is finalised.
The ASQA website contains up-to-date information on the status of any review processes. It is advisable to check the website to obtain current information concerning the status of regulatory decisions.
