This is the first page that greets you when visit ASQA’s‘Apply for initial registration.

ASQA reported the following in the 2016 – 2017 Annual Report:


Loans paid was in excess of $78 million dollars.


The number of students undertaking approved courses was in excess of 24,000


TAFEs were approved as course providers.


applications were rejected out of 485 in 2015 – 2016


applications were rejected out of 430 in 2016 – 2017

Due to the importance of maintaining a high barrier to market entry, applications for initial registration from organisations seeking to enter the VET market are not approved without audit.

The increase in the number of these applications over the past two financial years, and the increase in the percentage of these applicants that are poor-quality, has had a significant effect on ASQA’s regulatory resources. ASQA refused approximately one in five applications for initial registration during the reporting period.
