Who needs to complete ESOS Legislative Framework Awareness training?

All USC staff who interact directly with international students must be aware of the University’s obligations under the ESOS legislative framework and of the potential implications for students arising from the exercise of these obligations. This requirement is fulfilled through the completion of the ESOS Legislative Framework Awareness training module.

ESOS staff training is mandatory for all staff who interact directly with international students. This includes all staff based in the Schools (including sessional staff), USC International, and Student Services and Engagement. Staff are required to complete the training within one month of commencing employment, and then every two years. Supervisors are responsible for ensuring all relevant staff complete the training.

What does the ESOS Legislative Framework Awareness training involve?

This ESOS Legislative Framework Awareness training module covers information about the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) legislative framework, CRICOS and the National Code of Practice, including an introduction to each of the 11 Standards in Part B of the National Code.

The training module should take approximately 30-40 minutes to complete. As part of the module, you will be required to complete a 10-question quiz, which will assess your knowledge and understanding of the module content.

To pass the assessment a result of 80% or higher is required. Once completed, the results will be stored in the Blackboard Grade Centre database. Upon successful completion of the assessment a certificate can also be printed as a record of completion.
