QCI considerations

An RTO’s Training and Assessment Strategies (TAS) should all have the same format, in the interests of quality and consistency.

Does your RTO have a TAS template? If so, it should address, at minimum, the following areas:

  • training product
  • core and elective components
  • target group
  • mode of delivery
  • entry requirements
  • duration and scheduling
  • assessment resources, methods, and timing
  • learning resources
  • human resources
  • physical resources

Other considerations

To ensure clarity, it is useful to have a separate TAS for each context if you are delivering:

  • same qualification but different modes of delivery
  • same qualification but delivered to different types of learner groups
  • same qualification but delivered over different timeframes
  • stand-alone single units or skill sets
  • via assessment-only pathway
