ESOS legislative framework awareness training online has been developed for USC in collaboration with ELMO learning.
This 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 15 Standards in Part D of the National Code.
The training module should take approximately 30-40 minutes to complete. At the completion of the module there is a 10-question quiz that must be completed and will assess knowledge and understanding of the module content.
To pass the assessment a result of 80% or higher is required. Upon successful completion of the assessment a certificate can be printed as a record of completion.
Why do staff members need to complete this training?
As a registered provider of education to overseas students USC must comply with the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act.
In order to comply with Standard 6.7 of the National Code of Practice, all University of the Sunshine Coast staff who interact directly with international students must be aware of the University’s obligations under the ESOS legislative framework and the potential implications for students arising from the exercise of these obligations.
ESOS Legislative Framework Awareness online training provides staff with the knowledge and information needed to comply with the Act.
Staff members are required to complete the training at a minimum once every 24 months, and will receive an automated email prompt to remind them when they are next due to complete the module. They are also encouraged to re-visit this online training module periodically to refresh their knowledge, and to use the program as a resource when necessary.
Expected learning outcomes for staff include:
- understanding and purpose of the ESOS legislative framework
