COVID-19: Disruptions and RTO obligations

​We acknowledge there is widespread concern in the VET sector about disruption caused by novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

We are committed to supporting VRQA-registered RTOs through this period of uncertainty.

Stakeholders, including RTOs, have told us about issues faced by their organisations, students and staff.

We’re working with the Department of Education and Training on policy issues, including:

  • re-registration audits and scope amendments
  • delivery of training and training package transitions
  • constraints regarding work placements
  • annual declarations of compliance and reporting on quality indicators.

We will communicate regularly with the sector as this situation evolves. Please continue to check our website for new information:
