About the self-assessment tool

The self-assessment tool is designed to assist schools plan, implement and review vocational education and training (VET) programmes that offer nationally recognised qualifications from industry-developed training packages or accredited courses. It can be used by schools across all educational sectors to evaluate and improve the quality of VET delivery and can be applied to individual VET programmes or form part of a whole school approach to review VET delivered to secondary students.

The self-assessment tool is designed to be used by both experienced VET practitioners and those new to delivering VET to identify areas requiring improvement and support actions to enhance the quality of VET programmes. The tool provides guidance on good practice and directs users to supporting information and resources based on responses against each section. 

Updated versions of the self-assessment tool will be released throughout 2016 as further supporting resources are developed in consultation with states and territories. Resources will include case studies to guide good practice, templates and checklists.
