To ensure that the development and closure of CIT courses is conducted in accordance with industry needs and the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011 including the Standards for Registered Training Organisation (RTOs) 2015 and the Standards for VET Accredited Courses 2012, and the ACT Quality Framework.
The development of all accredited and non-accredited courses.
3.1 CIT will develop courses under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) and the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011. CIT will develop qualifications from AQF level 1 to 6 and AQF 8, as well as short course Statements of Attainment.
3.2 CIT will also develop non-accredited short courses to meet the needs of a specific client, or of a specific market, student or industry:
- Non-accredited courses may be either assessed or non-assessed.
- As these courses are outside the Nationally Recognised Training Framework, no award is issued following assessment. Students may however, receive a Record of Results.
- All advertising for these courses must clearly state that this is non-accredited training.
3.3 All course development must:
- follow the accepted processes as endorsed by the CIT Academic Council
- be consistent with CIT’s strategic directions, education and training profile, and education philosophy and aims.
3.4 VET courses will be added to CIT's scope of registration under delegation by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) to the CIT Chief Executive Officer. CIT's scope changes will be managed by CIT Program Services.
3.5 All VET-accredited courses will be developed according to the requirements of the AQF and the Standards for VET Accredited Courses 2012.
