December 24, 2020    rtoadvisoryperth

According to the information shared by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), most of the non-compliance problems faced by the RTO are due to improper practice and assessment of the tool. On the first attempt, it has been seen that a high percentage of RTOs do not pass the audit due to the wrong choice of the assessment tool. It is one of the shocking representations of the industry, and for that, you can get some help from RTO financial reporting services

  • Choose a suitable tool

People blame their auditors for facing difficulty in assessment or just looking for a way to pass the buck. But if you wish to pass your audit on time, it is essential to use a financial viability risk assessment tool. A suitable tool will help in quickly fixing and correcting the necessary things. Well, you can check out more information about it in this article. 

  • The quick fix

RTP owners buy assessment tools when the seller says that it has passed the ASQA Audits. But surprisingly, it is not true. Most of the tools available in the market have already failed the financial viability risk assessment requirements. That’s why; they must be amended to pass on the audits. 

  • Read the amendments

Several RTO owners are still going ahead with the assessment tool without reading the amendments. It is because they do not have the resource or time to do this. Also, they are pressured by superiors to start getting revenue at the earliest. There is nothing wrong with investing in new assessment tools, but the tools are not up to the mark. They are deficient, and relying on them fully without accessing the specific business needs can be extremely risky. It like you are driving a defective car and risking your own life. If you wish to avoid such situations, it is better to go through amendments and then opt for them.

  • Do not select a defective tool.

While choosing the assessment tool, people forget that it is a vital part. It helps in ensuring a quality education system. Defective tools can have a bad impact on everyone’s lives. Using a defective tool means the graduates are qualifying without getting learning the proper skills. As a result, it will not help them in the future. That’s why; it is of utmost importance to choose the best quality assessment tool that trains the graduates with the required knowledge. 

  • Lack of knowledge 

If you wish to be an assessor or a trainer, you should hold the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. It indicates that you understand the assessment tool appropriately. But the reality is different. The way assessors and trainers are being trained in the industry must be changed a bit. Working with the assessment tool is not like you can learn in one day. Also, it is not an expertise that anyone will have if they have never worked with it. 

  • Not possible to make valuable moderations

It is seen that issues like buying the wrong assessment tool and a little knowledge are not exclusive. There are RTOs with both all these issues, and they are interlinked. If the RTO does not have the essential skills on the assessment tools, it will not be possible to make valuable and effective moderations. 

  • Time-consuming process

Many people can become bored with the idea of supplementing and writing tools, but the procedure is easy. The only difference is it's time-consuming. But the important consideration is it does not need an in-depth understanding of what is required. Of course, a quality tool can cost you more but will serve the purpose. It is a way how you should spend time and money appropriately. 

  • As per the industry requirement

RTO consultants need to ensure that the tools are as per the industry requirements. It should be according to the training package, and the tool must be fit for use. It will be better to check the mapping guide to getting all the details. With that, it will help in minimizing all your risks. 

  • Understanding the requirement 

Also, every RTO should make sure that each staff should understand the requirement of the assessment tool. Reading the criteria will help in developing valid tools and context of the unit and the element together. It is a crucial aspect when it comes to considering a quality assessment tool. 

Final thoughts!

If you keep the above consideration in mind while choosing a quality assessment tool, you can minimize the risk. Moreover, it is essential to ensure that you have the right attitude towards the assessment tool and proper education. The seller will not face any difficulty or issues for selling the wrong product. But it will cost you the most, so ensure to check out carefully before investing.
