Introducing Your Monthly Compliance Strategy


Your Monthly Compliance Strategy

Here at Fortress, we believe that by focusing on performance, compliance should follow.

It’s easy to get so caught up in ticking boxes and complying that we forget why we are doing it in the first place.

Ask yourself: are you simply complying, or are you performing?

With the VET sector’s changing landscape, compliance is paramount to an RTO’s success and longevity.

This is why Fortress Learning is pleased to share our free Your Monthly Compliance Strategy with you.

Your Monthly Compliance Strategy provides a structured approach to evaluating your organisation’s compliance with the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (2015).

Here is what Fortress Learning Managing Director, Dr Bryan West, had to say about the importance of staying compliant as an RTO.

“Compliance now is top of mind for people. Performance really should take precedence over compliance because if you’re performing properly and adequately then you will be complying.

However, the change in the landscape over the last couple of years, especially with a shift in the regulatory landscape, means that compliance is something now that people are really focusing on.

Part of the reason for that is because the goalposts appear to have been moved, but no one’s really sure where they’ve been put. And that’s why it’s important that during those times of uncertainty that we do fall back upon the basics that we know work, and one of those basics is having a clearly defined structure that does address all of the requirements of a fundamental document such as the Standards for RTOs 2015.

The framework we are providing to people is the same one that we use, it’s the same structure, the same questions that we are being asked and the same questions that we answer. It’s the same one that has been through our own audit process (this is for re-registration) and has been found to be compliant.

At a time when people are lacking confidence generally, it’s a way that people can know where the boundaries are in terms of compliance, and by having the big picture in front of them and broken down into smaller monthly chunks, they personally can be confident that they are doing what it is they need to be doing.”

Your Monthly Compliance Strategy mirrors the five phases of the student journey which form the basis of ASQA’s new audit model which can be seen in the image below:

Clicking HERE will allow you to download the complete Strategy, with 12 months of actionable items to ensure you are performing in line with the Standards.

Because many people ask for it in bite-sized chunks, we can also send to you each month a separate email with just that month’s compliance activities, along with a video to explain what to do in that month. To receive Your Monthly Compliance Strategy on the first Monday of each month, simply click the image below.

This Compliance Strategy is the same approach that we use at Fortress Learning, and we are happy to share it with you.

We hope it assists.
