The Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) yesterday (23 November 2015) cancelled the registration of Phoenix Institute of Australia Pty Ltd (RTO 21582) as a provider of vocational education and training (VET) services, including to overseas students.
ASQA’s decision will take effect from 6 January 2016. The provider is able to seek a review of ASQA’s decision by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.
Phoenix was notified of ASQA’s intention to cancel its registration on 12 October 2015. It responded to ASQA’s notice on 9 November 2015.
ASQA Commissioners considered the response and evidence provided and made a decision to cancel the provider’s registration under the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011 and its registration for VET courses under the Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000.
