ASQA Stakeholder Liaison Group (SLG)

The Australian Skills Quality Authority’s (ASQA) Stakeholder Liaison Group (SLG) is a forum through which ASQA engages and consults with Vocational Education and Training (VET) providers, and other key stakeholders, on its approach to engagement and education with VET providers, and to identify and respond to key issues facing VET providers.  Please see the ASQA SLG Terms of Reference for more information.

Members of ASQA’s SLG are selected due to their experience and standing in the VET and ELICOS sectors.  TDA is very pleased two experienced and high standing TAFE practitioners are members of ASQA’s SLG.
