Starting 1 January 2018, the federal Dept of Education and Training released a the new Data Policy that applies to all RTOs.
The major changes that affect students is in relation to the Privacy Notice and data collection.
When you enrol with an RTO, they must have a Privacy Notice on their enrolment or registration forms.
Make sure you read the privacy statement before signing it.
The NCVER is now able to contact all students to survey them about their training experience with an RTO.
If you don’t want to partake in the survey, you will be given the opportunity to opt out.
The information that is collected through the survey informs the government about how well RTOs are doing against the Standrds we are bound by.
Feedback is provided to the RTOs regularly but rest assured, your personal details are not included in the feedback we get.
