Focus on Quality: TAC Regulatory Strategy 2021-2023

The Council has released its Focus on Quality: TAC Regulatory Strategy 2021-2023 informing RTOs and VET stakeholders about the specific focus areas the Council has identified as posing the highest risk to the quality of VET and the regulatory actions to monitor and minimise those risks over the next two years.
To prepare the Strategy, an environmental scan was conducted to identify systemic risks to the quality of VET outcomes in Western Australia.
Engagement with stakeholders ensures the Council is informed of issues that impact on the quality of VET from an industry and VET stakeholder perspective. Between May and June 2021, the Council consulted with over 45 groups to seek their views on risks to quality of training in WA.
The insights shared by WA stakeholders on issues affecting the quality of training and assessment in their sectors made a valuable contribution to the Strategy and is greatly appreciated.
In publishing the Strategy, the Council seeks to engage and motivate RTOs to achieve quality VET outcomes for Western Australia.
During 2021-2023, the Council will:
  • continue to provide an education program that supports RTO business improvement and compliance practices; and
  • focus regulatory activity on areas deemed to pose a risk to quality training outcomes. The focus areas are categorised under two main headings – Standards for RTOs and Training Products.  
1. Standards for RTOs
Across TAC registered RTOs, compliance trends at main audit for the past three years has seen improved compliance outcomes. A key focus for the Council over the next two years will see continued focus on compliance levels of RTOs, particularly across Standard 1.

2. Training Products
Ongoing monitoring of training products that have appeared in previous TAC regulatory strategies will continue to be a focus, alongside the inclusion of a number of training products related to the Early Childhood Education and Care sector and Pilot Vehicle Licences.
In consultation with industry stakeholders, the Council will determine an appropriate regulatory response in relation to the following:
  • units of competency that lead to High Risk Work Licences (a full list of units of competency is available here);
  • First aid units of competency including:
    • HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (previously HLTAID001)
    • HLTAID010 Provide basic emergency life support (previously HLTAID002)
    • HLTAID011 Provide First Aid (previously HLTAID003)
    • HLTAID012 Provide First Aid in an education and care setting (previously HLTAID004)
    • HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy (previously HLTAID007)
