Message from ASQA’s Chief Commissioner
Happy new year and welcome to our first ASQA Update in 2020. While I hope you all had a safe and relaxing holiday season, I’d like to acknowledge the difficult time faced by many as a result of the unprecedented bushfires across Australia. My colleagues and I extend our thoughts to everyone affected. I reiterate our previous advice to providers affected by these events to please contact us if you require any regulatory activity to be placed on hold or extensions of time to provide information.
During 2020, we will continue to increase our engagement with the VET sector and expand our education program. We have just launched our new website, which is aimed at delivering the information you need easily and simply, and we are in the process of organising more events like the webinars delivered towards the end of 2019.
Another important milestone for 2020 will be the outcome of the rapid review of ASQA. I’d like to thank all stakeholders who have provided feedback. We are looking forward to working with the outcomes of the review and continuing ASQA’s evolution to support a vibrant and high-quality VET sector.
Finally, I would like to wish everyone a safe and prosperous year.
Chief Commissioner and Chief Executive Officer
