All decisions made by the National VET Regulator ASQA are made under the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011 (Cth) and/or the Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000 (Cth). In making their decisions under the legislation, ASQA must follow certain procedures, including providing you with procedural fairness. If it can be identified that procedural fairness has not prevailed, then you may also have options such as the Federal Court. Other decisions are reviewable by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal ("AAT").
The types of sanctions available to regulators include:
Before you respond to any sanction notice, it is imperative that you contact RTO Doctor for some advice before responding. Too often we see providers who have worked with Consultants who do not specialise in this area and in taking their advice, it has compromised any chance of success.

Raelene Bartlett is a legend in the education space. Her knowledge of the applicable law, The Standards and her experience in acting for many hundreds of providers is without parallel. Her dedication to her clients and her stubborn adherence to her vision of a broader, fairer and more open education space for providers sets her apart from other players in the space.
There is no ‘near enough is good enough’. Perfection is the only option. Her loyal following from her clients and has earned the fearful respect of the regulator."
“As an experienced lawyer working extensively with RTOs in their dealings with ASQA and in applications to the AAT, I have worked with Raelene helping many RTOs over many years. With Raelene, you know she’s in your corner, but at the same time she brings much-needed objectivity and a clear-sighted approach in advising RTOs. Her comprehensive knowledge of the VET sector, including the legislation and Standards which regulate it and the policy and approach adopted by ASQA in overseeing it, are invaluable to RTOs but also to me in formulating and implementing the right legal strategy for each client. Raelene is an excellent ally in ensuring success.”
“We approached Raelene when we got the cancellation notice from ASQA as we wanted someone who could combine the legal mind with compliance knowledge and help us with not only rectification but develop an overarching strategy to fight what was very obviously a wrong and out of proportion decision by ASQA. She also stuck with us as a client till the very end ,ensuring a positive outcome unlike some in the industry who tend to bail out when things get to the hairy end. Raelene remains one of very few people I have known with a zero error approach and capacity to do so.
We remain grateful to her for what she brought on the table for us and gave us not only hope but led the strategy and execution, freeing us to focus on ensuring that the wolves did not circle the RTO when under stress."
“Raelene changed the paradigm of how we deal with regulators. She forces them to play by the rules rather than letting them throw their weight around unchallenged. As a result, even after multiple attempts to sanction or cancel us they have never been successful. Also, Raelene has worked with our RTO to become as compliant and bullet-proof as possible.
Now regulatory interaction is an occasional annoyance, not an existential threat.”
“I’ve worked with Raelene over several years and seen first-hand her invaluable assistance in reforming RTOs to prepare for proceedings in the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, and helping me to prepare for hearings. Her knowledge, diligence and attention to detail are first-rate, and I would happily recommend her to any RTO.”
With our RTO facing a cancellation decision by ASQA at Tribunal and having already engaged and worked with 4 different compliance consultants, it was with great fortune we were referred to Raelene Bartlett Founding Director of RTO Doctor to assist us with our fight with ASQA.
Raelene has been instrumental in winning our case after 2 years with ASQA and we have no hesitation in recommending her and RTO Doctor .
I have worked with a number of consultants over the years but RTO Doctor has been by far the best. In my view the knowledge that she brings to the audit process is first class.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so much for all of your loving support & guidance over the last week. Closing an RTO is one of the most stressful experiences I have been through in my ten years as a successful small business owner.
