When are audits conducted?
Group training organisations (GTOs) in Queensland are required to undertake different types of audits, scheduled at different times.
The Department of Education and Training determines the timing of subsequent compliance audits for a GTO and will be scheduled at least once every three years from the initial or previous compliance audit.
In accordance with the National Standards, GTOs are also required to conduct an annual self-assessment audit against the standards. These self-assessment audits will enable GTOs to identify issues and implement improvements to ensure continued compliance.
A GTO is required to undertake the self-assessment process by 31 December each year and to submit the self-assessment report to the department by 31 January of the following year.
These self-assessment audit reports are required for both desk-based and site audits.
