A requirement of being a pre-qualified supplier under the User Choice 2010 - 2015 and Certificate 3 Guarantee programs, is that Quest College is required to publish audit information in relation to its compliance with the Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) or VET Quality Framework.
The User Choice program provides public funding paid directly to Pre-qualified Suppliers for the delivery of accredited entry-level training to eligible Apprentices and Trainees.
The AQTF or VET Quality Framework is the national set of standards which assures nationally consistent, high-quality training and assessment services for the clients of Australia's vocational education and training system.
An AQTF audit reviews evidence of an organisation's compliance with the requirements of the AQTF Essential Conditions and Standards of Initial/Continuing Registration to confirm that it is achieving quality training and assessment outcomes. The process also identifies opportunities for improvement of these outcomes.
A VET Quality Framework audit of a registered training organisation reviews evidence of compliance with the requirements of the VET Quality Framework to confirm that it is achieving quality training and assessment outcomes. The process also identifies opportunities for improvement of these outcomes.
This information is published to assist apprentices, trainees and their employers to make informed decisions regarding their selection of a Pre-Qualified Supplier for the delivery of training and assessment services.
