About Vocational Education and Training (VET)
Australia’s Vocational Education and Training (VET) system is based on nationally recognised Training Packages that identify specific skills and knowledge applied in the workplace. Students undertaking VET qualifications or statements of attainments (units) of competency must demonstrate the skills and knowledge identified in a training package and be deemed ‘competent’ in the selected units of competency to be eligible for the award of the qualification.For more information on Australia’s VET system, visit training.gov.au/Home/Tga
In Australia, only Registered Training Organisations (RTO)s can issue nationally recognised qualifications, or statements of attainments (units) . Our RTO provider code is RTO 22719.
VRQA Standards, Governance and Legislative Requirements for RTOs
The VRQA Standards and their elements specify the key requirements to be met by each RTO. The Standards for RTOs 2015 do not specify detailed processes but outline the outcomes to be achieved through the application of each Standard. The Centre for U can show, through systematic approaches to management and continuous improvement, that it is focused on continuously improving its outcomes in relation to each Standard.
In addition to maintaining compliance with VRQA Standards, The Centre for U manages its training courses in accordance with relevant State and Territory legislation and regulations. The Centre for U encourages all participants to be familiar with the relevant legislation, Acts and Regulator requirements and how they impact on their workplace.
