Beyond the standard: motivators of high-performing RTOs

Registered training provider (RTO) quality remains a topic of great interest to VET users and governments as the sector adapts to skill Australia’s current and future workforce. All RTOs must adhere to minimum quality standards, but some deliver above and beyond those standards. This presentation will leave attendees with an understanding of:

  • What intrinsic and extrinsic factors motivate RTOs to pursue high performance
  • How RTOs embed the pursuit of high performance into their business and education practices
  • The values that RTO leaders hold and how those values might interact with VET policy.
