Assessment Resources

Registered training organisations (RTOs) are at the forefront of vocational education and training (VET) in Australia.  They translate the needs of industry into relevant, quality, client-focussed training and assessment.

RTOs should strive for innovation in VET teaching and learning practices and develop highly flexible approaches to assessment which take cognisance of specific needs of learners, in order to improve delivery and outcomes of training.
