Annual Declaration on Compliance

Complete the annual declaration on compliance (ADC) with peace of mind

Javier Amaro

About this Workshop

The ADC is a mechanism included in the Standards for RTOs to support RTO’s self-assurance, that requires the RTO (working as a team) to review its compliance performance and produce evidence that demonstrates the RTO’s ability to maintain compliance, identify, and rectify non-compliances. The RTO CEO is responsible for completing the ADC.

ASQA’s approach to the ADC has shifted from providing low value to the information received from CEOs, to using the data collected to determine its regulatory priorities. Consequently, RTO managers and CEOs have an increased interest in the quality of the self-assessment used to monitor operations, outcomes achieved and continuous improvement actions, prior to completing the annual declaration.

This workshop has been designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge to establish and implement an effective compliance self-assessment system to prevent, identify, and rectify non-compliances. Our experienced facilitators will demonstrate proven techniques to monitor and manage compliance for RTOs.

Why should I attend?

According to ASQA, 118 RTOs failed to complete their ADC in 2023. Many RTO CEOs are signing the ADC without having evidence of a comprehensive self-assessment of compliance performance. The main reasons for the lack of evidence produced and maintained by RTOs are:

  1. not having suitable self-assurance systems;
  2. lack of compliance skills within RTO staff; and
  3. not sufficient resources allocated to compliance monitoring activities.

The Annual Declaration on Compliance Workshop will provide you with tools to conduct all necessary compliance monitoring activities, including self-assessments (audits), quality checks, feedback analysis, and validations, which are the bases of a successful submission of the ADC. Our training works because:

  • Our training content is continuously updated to meet the evolving regulatory environment.
  • Our trainers and facilitators are practising RTO Managers and Auditors.
  • You will have opportunities to network with other RTO CEOs, managers and compliance professionals throughout the day.
  • You will have access to exclusive online resources.
  • You will have access to ready to use  templates and tools.
