Queensland VET Quality
The Queensland Government is committed to promoting quality in vocational education and training (VET).
The Queensland VET Quality Framework, now in development, underpins the government's commitment to embedding quality in all aspects of the VET system in Queensland. It aims to promote market-wide confidence that VET equals quality, whether it be training delivery, assessment, work readiness or jobs.
Within the VET system, quality is a shared responsibility between the Commonwealth, state and territory governments, industry, students, employers and training providers.
The Queensland Government sets the policy for the training it subsidies and, in doing so, oversees the quality of subsidised training through a disciplined approach to market oversight and compliance measures.
Queensland's Department of Education and Training has managed contestable purchasing arrangements for training for many years, with a range of business areas having responsibility to promote quality in service delivery. The framework brings together those responsibilities under one umbrella and outlines the department's approach to the oversight of quality oversight in VET.
As detailed in the draft framework, Queensland's comprehensive and systematic approach to achieving quality from Queensland Government-funded VET is outlined in five key steps:
- program design
- supplier entry requirements
- information and support
- market performance and oversight
The framework helps stakeholders understand how the department develops operational policy, procedures and guidelines, and identifies opportunities for continuous improvement.
All stakeholders are given a single and authoritative overview of the effectiveness of the department's approach to quality VET delivery and its role in the national agenda.
