A message from the Director

Welcome to the 28th edition of E-news. This edition features BUSY At Work (BUSY), the VRQA appointed contractor for the provision of apprenticeship and traineeship regulatory field services in Victoria. BUSY has established a reputation as the specialists in apprenticeships, growing apprenticeship and traineeship numbers predominantly across Queensland, with a particular focus on community development and pathways for key priority groups.

There is an important reminder for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) about the National Skills Standards Council (NSSC) Determination for trainer and assessor requirements that came into effect on 1 July 2013.

In addition, there is a reminder for RTOs of the timelines for Form B - Application for amending scope of Vocational Education and Training (VET) registration.

You can also read about changes to the Association Incorporation Reform Act 2012 that will come into effect on 26 November 2013. All entities operating as an Incorporated Association should ensure that their Rules are in accordance with the new requirements and appropriate governance arrangements are in place.

I would also like to alert you to the expiry of the current VRQA panel arrangements for VET financial health assessments on 31 December 2013. The VRQA has released a Request for Tender for provision of these services across both the VET and Schools sectors for the next three years. Details are on the Tenders VIC website. The tender closes on 31 October 2013.

Links to the latest VRQA publications are also included in this edition.

I welcome any feedback on this edition and encourage you to email your suggestions for future article topics to: vrqa@edumail.vic.gov.au
