QUESTION ON NOTICE — Mr Hibbins to ask the Minister for Education for the Minister for Training and Skills — 

In 2014–15: 

(1) How many times has the Market Monitoring Unit undertaken a review or an investigation into a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

(2) What were the names of the RTOs reviewed or investigated.

(3) What were the outcomes of the reviews and/or investigations.

Answer:

 

The Minister for Training and Skills:  I am informed as follows:

 

The Market Monitoring Unit (MMU) was established by the previous government in 2012 to understand market behaviours.

 

To achieve this, the MMU engaged with RTOs to obtain qualitative and quantitative evidence related to specific areas of market concern. However, the MMU did not conduct specific investigation or reviews into individual RTOs. 

 

Given widespread concern about quality of provision, rorting of taxpayer funded training and inappropriate market behaviour under the previous government, the Andrews Government commissioned a major Review of Quality of VET provision, including an injection of $9 million to undertake an immediate audit blitz.

 

From 1 July 2015, the MMU has been transferred to the Higher Education and Skills Group.  This move will consolidate and strengthen the Department's ability to monitor delivery of VET in Victoria and to implement reforms associated with the quality assurance review.
