Why Attend

Why Attend?

The VET Policy and Compliance Summit is the largest event for RTOs CEOs, managers, consultants, and VET quality and compliance professionals in Australia. It will provide you with the knowledge, strategies, and solutions you need to effectively manage quality and compliance.

If you operate an RTO, or you are part of the management team of an RTO, you will understand just how important developing and implementing successful strategies, managing performance and monitoring compliance, is to your business.

The VET Policy and Compliance Summit 2021 covers all areas of RTO’s compliance and provides in-depth guidance for what you need to know. You will walk away with updated information, skills and tools to effectively manage compliance, and the risks associated to potential non-compliances.


The right mix of Keynotes and TED Talks

We are changing the way compliance events are delivered in Australia. Quality and compliance can be daunting and difficult to assimilate, even for a captive audience, so this year we are introducing the concise TED Talks presentation style into our Summit.

The program includes 4 Keynotes (45 minutes duration including 10 minutes Q&A), 9 TED Talk presentation (18 minutes duration), and 2 Panel Q&A sessions; providing a dynamic and engaging event built around ASQA’s five phases of students’ experience.

Relevant and timely information

Every year by 31 March RTOs must complete the annual declaration on compliance. CEOs submit a declaration confirming to ASQA that they have systematically monitored the RTO’s compliance with the Standards and any issues have been identified.

Our Speakers will share up-to-date information about VET Quality and Compliance requirements, industry trends and best practices, that can be applied immediately to successfully manage an RTO, and provide you peace of mind when completing the CEO’s Annual Declaration on Compliance.
