Outcomes

Assessment and accreditation of ITE programs is done to a rigorous standard

Performance indicator

Perceptions of ITE providers and accreditation panels confirm that programs are being rigorously assessed against the Program Standards

AITSL will use the annual panel review process to continue to seek feedback on the extent to which panellists agree that ITE programs are being rigorously assessed against the Program Standards.

When will we know more?

The next panel review will be undertaken in late 2018, and data from this review will be reported in early 2019.

Outcomes

Consistency in assessment of ITE programs between and within states and territories

Performance indicators

1. Accreditation panel members perceptions confirm the assessment of ITE programs is consistent across panels and states/territories

AITSL will use the annual panel review process to continue to seek feedback on the extent to which panellists agree that ITE programs are being consistently assessed across panels and state/territories.

2. Standard setting and comparability processes demonstrate a high degree of consistency in decision-making of accreditation panels

Amendments agreed to by the Education Council in June 2018 will give AITSL greater scope to support consistency in decision making, including leading a standard setting process and establishing what it means to meet the accreditation standards.

When will we know more?

AITSL will begin to work with ITE stakeholders on standard setting and comparability processes in early 2019, and outcomes will be used to inform ongoing decision-making in ITE program accreditation.
