Quality Assurance

TAFE SA’s status as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and Higher Education Provider (HEP) is managed through the National Regulators, Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) and the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). It is a requirement of registration with ASQA and TEQSA that TAFE SA demonstrates ongoing compliance with all requirements of the VET Quality Framework and the Higher Education Standards Framework. Compliance is assessed though regular audits. The most recent audit occurred in November 2014 as part of a national strategic review of training in the equine industry. TAFE SA was re-registered as a HEP following an audit conducted in November 2015.
