Registered training organisations (RTOs) may choose to negotiate fees for the delivery of Australian Apprenticeships training directly with the employer and not apply for User Choice funding. To be approved as a fee-for-service provider on the ACT Qualifications Register, the RTO must read, understand and agree to the ACT Statement of Expectations by completing and returning the RTO Nomination for Fee-for-Service Delivery form to Skills Canberra by email at email@example.com. RTOs that are unsuccessful in being approved for Fee-for-Service Delivery may re-apply after six months from receipt of the determination notice.
The ACT Statement of Expectations outlines the expectations for RTO conduct in the provision of Australian Apprenticeship training in the ACT. The Statement is structured around four key principles of professional conduct. These principles serve as a minimum benchmark for professional behaviour and ensure public confidence in the integrity of the VET sector in the ACT. Accordingly, the principles act as a point of reference for all ACT stakeholders including RTOs, business and industry and students.
