What Your RTO Can Do About these Changes to the Training Packages

To maintain compliance, here are the best practices your RTO should do regarding recent changes to training packages in 2022:

Keep abreast of training package transitions

Stay informed about the latest revisions to training packages, including any transition periods and deadlines, in order to align your courses and assessments with the updated standards.

Visit training.gov.au for the recent changes to training packages and know more about the transition deadlines via ASQA’s website.

Re-add qualifications to your scope

To add the qualifications back to your RTO’s scope, you will need to follow the relevant process outlined by your regulatory body. This may involve submitting an application, providing evidence of your compliance with the training package requirements, and undergoing an audit to ensure that your RTO can deliver the qualifications to the required standards. It’s important to carefully review the requirements and provide thorough and accurate evidence to increase your chances of success.

Review your courses and assessments

Stay ahead of the curve by regularly assessing the relevance and compliance of your courses and assessments with the latest training package updates. Ensure that they align with the new standards and meet the needs of your learners. In addition to this, consider incorporating new learning resources and assessment methods to keep your RTO at the forefront of education and training.

Invest in professional development

Your trainers and assessors represent how students perceive your RTO. By investing in their professional development and upskilling them to deliver updated courses, you will not only maintain compliance but also improve the credibility of your RTO to your learners and prospective students.

To upskill trainers in recent training package transitions, RTOs can invest in various professional development activities. Here are some ways RTOs can upskill their trainers:

  1. Attend professional development training
    RTOs can arrange for their trainers to attend training sessions provided by industry bodies, training package developers, and other professional organisations. These training sessions can help trainers gain a deeper understanding of the changes in the training package and provide guidance on how to deliver courses effectively.
  2. Participate in workshops and webinars
    Trainers can also participate in workshops and webinars provided by industry bodies, training package developers, and other professional organisations. These sessions can provide an opportunity to share best practices, gain practical knowledge, and learn from experienced professionals.
  3. Collaborate with peers
    RTOs can encourage their trainers to collaborate with their peers from other RTOs to share knowledge and experiences. This can be achieved through professional networks, forums, and social media groups.
  4. Encourage self-directed learning
    RTOs can also encourage their trainers to engage in self-directed learning by providing access to online resources, webinars, and other relevant materials. This can help trainers stay up-to-date with the latest industry trends and best practices.
  5. Provide mentoring and coaching
    RTOs can also provide mentoring and coaching to their trainers to help them develop their skills and knowledge. This can be achieved by pairing trainers with experienced colleagues or providing one-on-one coaching sessions.

Participate in training, workshops and other industry events

Attending professional development events such as conferences, seminars, and workshops can benefit your RTO in multiple ways. Not only will your staff gain valuable insights into the latest changes to training packages, but they will also be able to stay up-to-date with industry best practices and further improve their skills. Participating in these events can also provide opportunities for networking and collaboration, helping to keep your RTO at the forefront of the industry and maintain a competitive edge.

Choose high-quality resources

While it’s important to update your training materials after training package transitions, choosing the right resources from a vast market of providers can be challenging.

Here are a few things your RTO needs to consider when looking for training resources that fit your standards best:

  • The type of setup e.g., face-to-face, online, or blended training delivery
  • The number of students your RTO can accommodate
  • Your RTO’s ability to contextualise your own resources
  • A Plan B for your training materials in case they fail an audit

Ensure resource contextualisation

Check if your trainers have the necessary skills and experience to contextualise your RTO materials. If not, consider seeking resources that are already updated, or invest in resources that provide updates to the training materials. While it may appear cost-effective to have your trainers contextualise the materials themselves, this may compromise the quality of your materials and the training delivery of your trainers who will have to split their time between preparation and contextualisation. Often this means having to redo work later, or training using materials of compromised quality.

Hiring a team to contextualise your resources or updating your training materials to the latest version can be beneficial to maintaining your RTO’s relevance and compliance in the industry.

Observe transition deadlines

ASQA has set strict deadlines for training package transitions. Prompt action is important as any delays can negatively impact your marketing and enrollment efforts, and ultimately, your business. It is recommended to have clear deadlines for transition so your RTO can take timely steps to accommodate the changes and update your course materials promptly.

In conclusion, it’s crucial for RTOs to stay up to date with the latest changes in the training packages to ensure they continue to supply quality training and assessment services. Visiting websites such as training.gov.au and ASQA can help keep RTOs informed of changes and updates to the training packages. RTOs should also consider creating their own tracker to monitor when they need to make changes or update their scope.

By staying on top of the changes, RTOs can provide relevant, current, and high-quality training and assessment services to their students.
