The 2015 Australian Skills Quality Authority Users’ Guide of Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTO’s). Explicitly outlines the requirements for RTO’s to consult with industry on development of training programs, assessment strategies, and resource development (Clauses 1.5 – 1.6 *).

In response to this requirement the Australasian Furnishing Association (AFA) introduced the Australian Furnishing Community of Practice Network (AFCoPN) to assist in providing direct access to a community of practice for RTO’s. AFCoPN Membership will help to ensure that RTO training and assessment practices are well informed and relevant to the needs of industry as required by the Standard.

AFCoPN will also work with RTO’s who must implement a range of strategies for industry engagement. It will systematically use the outcome of that industry engagement to ensure continuous valid industry feedback is provided for:

  1. a)Its training and assessment strategies, practices and resources


  1. b)The current industry skills of its trainers and assessors.
