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