RTO Consulting

Expert RTO consulting and compliance support tailored to your needs.

Manage Compliance Risk with RTO Consulting Services

Our years of expertise mean the consultants at RTO Works can assist you in managing and reducing your compliance risk at every stage of building your RTO.

RTO Works has been supporting VET providers for over 20 years, providing expert advice and guidance. This gives us a deep understanding of the challenges faced by RTOs in Australia. Our RTO consulting services can empower your organisation with more structure and efficiency, allowing you to effectively deliver our quality training and assessment material.

Get in touch if you are setting up a new RTO, expanding your scope or preparing for an audit – our consultants can provide the support you need.

RTO, CRICOS and ELICOS Setup and Registration

RTO Works can facilitate most aspects of registering a new RTO. Our full consulting service also includes assessing financial viability and assisting with business planning.

As a trusted resource provider, we will get your RTO started on the right foot with customisable training and assessment resources. Our resources have been developed in collaboration with subject matter experts, trainers and leading RTOs. This ensures students and instructors are supported from day one.

If you plan to deliver training to international students, and/or provide English language courses, our consultants can also help you obtain CRICOS and ELICOS registration.

RTO Policies and Procedures

New and existing RTOs are expected to maintain a broad range of policies and procedures. Developing policies that comply with ASQA’s requirements can be complex and time consuming.

To reduce your development time and streamline the delivery of your material, RTO Works can assist you with creating full policy and procedure packs. We offer access to standard off-the-shelf documentation that can be customised to your RTO, with support from our consultants if required.

Course Development

Our team can develop a custom TAS that clearly outlines how to run your course – including all top-level information required to manage delivery and assessment. If you’re submitting an initial CRICOS application, RTO Works can also create your timetable document.

We offer a variety of off-the-shelf TAS packages, or our consultants can assist you in developing custom documentation for your qualifications, skill sets and units of competency.

Addition to Scope

Expanding your scope is an effective way to grow your business and keep up with changing student needs. Our team can help add new qualifications or units of competency to your RTO or CRICOS scope of registration, and we can assist with submitting your application through ASQAnet.

Audit Services

The RTO audit process is crucial to maintaining the integrity of the VET industry. New and existing RTOs are subject to audit, which could uncover compliance issues within your organisation.

RTO Works provides support throughout the audit process. We can assist you to prepare for an audit, review your resources, assess the outcome of audits, challenge rulings or rectify any issues encountered.

Compliance Support

Compliance matters often require proactive and ongoing management. To assist you in maintaining your compliance, RTO Works offers compliance support and rectification support that can help you stay ahead of industry regulations.

We provide consulting for a range of situations, including RTO Change of Ownership, audit rectification and routine compliance support. This ensures your RTO remains compliant and that potential issues are dealt with quickly.

Assessment Validation

Our team provides support for assessment tool quality review, and student assessment validation.

During this process, we quality-review your assessment tools and provide a report on our findings. Our validation services can support your pre-implementation process, or we can provide general compliance support to ensure your tools are effective and compliant.

For student assessment validation, we assess a sample of their work and audit it against your assessment tools and benchmarks. This allows us to highlight areas of concern and make recommendations on improving your RTO’s processes.
