Australian Recognition Framework Arrangements. Australia's National Training Framework.
Australian National Training Authority, Brisbane.
This document explains the objectives, principles, standards, and protocols of the Australian Recognition Framework (ARF), which is a comprehensive approach to national recognition of vocational education and training (VET) that is based on a quality-assured approach to the registration of training organizations seeking to deliver training, assess competency outcomes, and issue qualifications. The following items are included: preface detailing the ARF's key objectives, principal mechanism for recognition, and transition arrangements; nine principles underpinning the ARF (mutual recognition of qualifications and statements of attainment by registered training organizations [RTOs]; mutual recognition of registration decisions by state training authorities/state recognition authorities [STAs/SRAs]; mutual recognition of RTOs by other STAs/SRAs; mutual recognition through primary recognition authority; provision of information by primary recognition authority; authority to issue qualifications; monitoring/audit; complaints management; and information management); standards (national core standards for registration; national product/service standards for training delivery; national product/service standards for skill recognition services; and national standards for registration as a training organizations recognized as quality endorsed to self-manage training recognition); protocols (national operational protocols for external review processes, marketing of recognized training, and fees for registration); and glossary.
