Who we are

Wheretofromhere? was established in 2002 to provide professional services to Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector. We assist RTOs with their compliance requirements, we set-up new RTOs and we provide on-going support and assistance in maintaining those systems. We develop people, design and refine systems and ensure positive business results regardless of the size or complexity of the organisation.

With the ever-changing regulatory requirements, RTOs are finding it more and more difficult to meet the compliance standards and stay up to date with those changes. Wheretofromhere offers expert advice and professional services to help meet those requirements.

In the current regulatory environment, our extensive auditing and compliance experience is helping numerous RTOs with rectification work required after a negative Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) audit outcome. This includes representation on legal matters and at the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT), with great success.

What we do

Our philosophy is simply to assist RTOs with identifying efficient ways to continually improve every aspect of their business. We achieve this through education and consulting services to empower staff to think efficiently, act efficiently and seek improvement in every facet of the business operations. Being compliant with the RTO standards is relatively straight-forward, however using the framework to grow your business and stay ahead of your competitors requires a systematic approach.

We are very experienced, registered lead auditors for the RTO standards, ISO9000 and GTO standards.

We are highly proficient compliance and business consultants who understand quality management systems in training businesses.

We conduct audit rectification work including AAT

We prepare CRICOS applications and compliance

We provide quality consulting in all areas of the VET sector

Operating across a number of States and Territories in Australia, I get to see firsthand the inconsistency in the way RTO standards are interpreted and applied. I understand this is one of ASQAs major battles and one that may be resolved through ongoing...
