VETNexus and the Vocational Education and Training Sector

A ‘nexus’ is defined as a series of connections, linking two or more things. At VETNexus, we aim to support the people within the broader education sector through utilising our vast network of connections in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) and eLearning industries.

Support for your Registered Training Organisation (RTO)

  • Do you need assistance with managing the compliance within your RTO?
  • Do you want to know if what you are doing is on track?
  • Do you need help with getting staff upskilled in their development of assessment or learning resources?

VETNexus is here to support your RTO across all of these aspects.

Get In Touch Today

Kerri Buttery, Director of VETNexus, has over two decades experience in the Vocational Education and Training sector along with experience in eLearning as a Partner with Instructure, the provider of the Canvas LMS. VETNexus also partners with John Price, John Price & Associates, and Angela McGregor, RTO Consultant, to deliver a wider range of services through The VET Gurus.

With our people having such an extensive range of experience in the Vocational Education and Training sector, VETNexus is able to support your Registered Training Organisation (RTO) in providing a range of VET solutions. We can provide advice on just about any area of your RTO operations, particularly in relation to the Australian Skills Quality Authority’s (ASQA’s) student-centred audit approach and compliance with the Standards for RTOs 2015. Our services include, but are not limited to:

RTO Setup & Registration Services

We can assist with the creation of a compliance framework, including all required policies and procedures, business planning, reviewing training and assessment materials and completion of the application process.

RTO Extension to Scope Applications

Extension to scope includes ensuring your RTO has all materials for the training product ready to go. We can provide a review of those materials to ensure they are compliant as well as assisting with the application and transition processes.

Ongoing Requirements for Maintaining Compliance in your RTO

We are able to provide advice about ongoing compliance with the Standards for RTOs 2015, the annual declaration on compliance, validation processes, AVETMISS reporting, and general ongoing compliance.

Accredited Course Development

When there isn’t a nationally recognised training product that meets your organisation’s needs you may be able to develop a VET accredited course to fill that gap. We are able to assist with this process from beginning to end or help you in updating an existing accredited course.

Internal Audits & Reviews

A specialty area for us is conducting internal audits of your RTO’s operations against all eight (8) standards within the Standards for RTOs 2015, or we can conduct a review of the delivery of a training product against Standard 1 only. These services provide a ‘health check’ for your RTO so you know where to focus your efforts in continuous improvement.

Validation Services

It is a requirement of the Standards for RTOs 2015 that an RTO’s assessment system undergoes validation according to a five-year validation schedule. We can assist in this process as the qualified TAE holder to work as part of a team with a subject matter expert. We are also able to provide independent validation services for TAE training products.

RTO Trainer and Assessor Professional Development

Webinars, face-to-face workshops, one-on-one sessions, online courses, keynotes or elective presentations at conferences: we have it all covered. Join in on one of our publicly available training events or have a custom session designed for your RTO.

We are here to help you make sure that your RTO is operating at its optimal level, not only ensuring compliance but also following best business practices. Our mission is to help everyone in the Vocational Education and Training industry understand what they need to do and provide the best experience for their learners. We do this by supporting organisations just like yours!
