The Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) is the national set of standards which assures nationally consistent, high-quality training and assessment services for the clients of Australia's vocational education and training (VET) system.
Our yearly AQTF surveys play an integral part in our continuous improvement program.
Out of the respondents to our Employer Questionnaire survey, 79.2 per cent said they were satisfied overall with the training provided by the MTA, a good result with indicators identifying where we can improve such as remaining flexible to employer needs, developing customised programs and developing people skills in apprentices.
Out of the 365 apprentices who responded to the Learner Questionnaire survey, 79.9 per cent said they either agreed or strongly agreed that they were satisfied with the overall quality of training at the MTA. Again, a good result, but the survey identified areas we can improve such as providing better learning resources.
Pleasingly, MTA Trainer quality was a standout with apprentices. 83.3 per cent said they either agreed or strongly agreed that their trainer’s quality was satisfactory, overall.
What does the survey feedback tell us about our overall performance?
Feedback indicated that learners would like improvements in modernisation in training aids in heavy vehicle vocations, assessments more specific to heavy vehicle vocations and knowledge assessments to be reviewed more in line with learner feedback.
What are we doing to improve?
The MTA has been making improvements across our training facilities, adding new training aids and resources for learners, purchasing new training equipment, improving clarification of practical assessments updating assessments.
