A message from the Director

Welcome to the VRQA’s e-news.

In July the VRQA announced that regulatory field services would be provided in Victoria by BUSY At Work, following a public tender process. This edition contains further details of the new arrangements, including where to access important information about the services provided by BUSY At Work.

Recently, the National Skills Standards Council (NSSC) met regarding the review of national standards for VET providers and regulators. We have linked to the latest information from the NSSC as part of our commitment to keep VRQA-registered VET providers informed about regulatory developments.

Information about the fees that will apply from 1 January 2014 for schools, VET providers and others is now available following the annual update of provider registration fees.

Finally, you may receive an invitation shortly to participate in our annual Education Provider Survey. Your participation assists the VRQA to ensure the most useful and relevant information is provided to providers and stakeholders.

The VRQA values feedback about the information and resources provided, as well as suggestions for future e-news articles. Feedback can be provided via the survey or directed to vrqa@edumail.vic.gov.au
