by on March 29, 2011

The message below is a note to Chairs from Anne Doolette from AQF…

  1. Implementation of the AQF will commence on 1 July 2011. For the higher education sector, use of the AQF will commence from the date of commencement of the regulatory functions of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency. Implementation may commence voluntarily from 1 July 2011. For the VET sector, use of the AQF will commence from 1 July 2011. For the school sector, use of the AQF may commence voluntarily prior to 1 January 2015.
  2. All requirements of the AQF will be met from 1 January 2015.
  3. From 1 January 2015, all new enrolments will be in qualifications that meet the requirements of the AQF. From this date, students already enrolled in qualifications may complete the qualification in which they enrolled or may transfer without disadvantage to an equivalent qualification that meets the requirements of the AQF. Authorised issuing organisations will have publicly available policies or procedures to assist with this transition.
  4. Accrediting authorities and developers of AQF qualifications will have in place policies and processes in sufficient time to ensure that the implementation arrangements are met.
