These values are at the centre of everything we do and are applied in our interactions with each other, our external stakeholders and community. They provide an operational focus for the principles set out by the Board in the VRQA Strategic Plan. Our values complement the Department of Education and Training (DET) CORE Values and reflect the VRQA’s role as regulator.


Respect and Diversity: We respect others and value the diversity that individuals bring to our organisation.

Integrity: We create reliability and trust in our organisation for all staff and act with honesty when dealing with our stakeholders.

Transparency: We ensure that stakeholders have access to high quality information about education and training providers and the VRQA's regulatory role and processes.

Empowerment: We are committed to developing staff, enabling them to reach their potential in order to provide the highest quality service and information to stakeholders.
