Auspicing Information


The Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA) have delivery and assessment guidelines for all VET providers in Victoria. The aim of these guidelines is to strengthen  the quality requirements of all VET providers and to clearly align the provision of VET with educational outcomes.  All VET providers must meet the minimum standards. NEW: Schools will need to comply with the EOP (Evidence of Participation) processes. All students will require a USI number to be enrolled.
