HLTINFCOV001 Comply with infection prevention and control policies and procedures has been released as a new skill set on infection control to upskill workers and manage risks arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. The skill sets have been designed to enable infection control training across the retail, food and beverage and transport and logistics sectors. The AISC has also developed resources to deliver to these specific cohorts.
In preparation for staff and students returning during the coming months, ASQA has highlighted some resources to help RTOs create a safe work and training place, as well as various other support that may be relevant to organisations.
A recording of a webinar delivered by ASQA on 6 May to provide the vocational education and training, and ELICOS sectors with information and guidance in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic is now available online
The report of the review details ASQA’s current operating environment, practices and policies. It highlights the many areas that are working effectively and the critical areas that can be enhanced.”
The review concluded that while ASQA’s overarching vision and purpose remain appropriate, a range of adjustments are needed to improve ASQA’s engagement and communication with the VET sector. This will ensure its regulatory approach is guided by necessity, risk and proportionality.
Expressions of interest are open to all ASQA-regulated VET providers and to VET sector consultants, with membership selection criteria that reflect the diversity of ASQA’s regulated community. The purpose of the Stakeholder Liaison Group is to engage and consult with providers and other key stakeholders on ASQA’s approach to engagement and education, and to identify and respond to key issues facing providers.
