Registered Training Organisations, also known as RTOs, are organisations with the purpose to offer vocational education and training (VET) to their students.VET, as opposed to higher education (i.e. university)offers students an opportunity to learn the required practical skills and knowledge to gain employment in their desired field.
There are more than 5000 RTOs in Australia covering a wide range of subjects and offering tens of thousands of different courses. When deciding whether to start your own RTO you should consider what you can offer students. To thrive in such a competitive market, your RTO must offer students an exceptional and unique learning experience.
Opening a RTO requires a considerable investment of time, energy and funds. And, as with any entrepreneurial venture, there is a risk of losing everything you invest.The RTO sector in Australia is heavily regulated, meaning the aforementioned risk is ever present because of potential regulatory non-compliance. But as we all know, there are two sides to the coin: the flipside of thepotential risk is the potential profits. Getting your business off the ground in the right way is an investment in your RTO’s future. To find out more about legal compliance for RTOs, consult a RTO solicitor.
And what about the responsibility that setting up a RTO carries? As a RTO business owner, you must provide students with both education and guidance, a responsibility that should not be taken lightly. You may have firm ideas of what you want to offer prospective students, but to hold the title of RTO, you must offer accredited courses. But what does offering an accredited course mean? What are the criteria for an accredited course?What if the accreditation is rejected?
