Setting up a
   new ElICOS School

There have been two major recent changes that have had a large impact on the ELICOS landscape. Below is a summary update on what has been happening.

1. Changes to the ELICOS Standards

In the new 2018 ELICOS Standards, several of the key elements have been rewritten. This means that at both the application and audit stages, ASQA (the regulatory body) will expect to see you incorporate these changes into your policies and procedures and in how you plan to run your day-to-day operations.

2. Changes to how ASQA will assess applications.

On 1 May 2018, ASQA announced that they will be “increasing scrutiny on new applications for registration from 1 July 2018”. This scrutiny will be on aspects like finances, and who is making the application. But the biggest change is that applicants will no longer have an opportunity to correct non-compliances prior to a decision being made on their application.

What does this mean?

With all of these changes occurring, it is now more important than ever to choose the right ELICOS consultant. ELICOS Consulting has the expertise and experience to ensure you get your application approved.

Testimonials

Strongly advocate his services

Having worked with Murray during the setting up of an ELICOS English College I recommend Murray. His knowledge and professionalism throughout the whole process is one of his key attributes. Furthermore his attention to detail whilst overseeing each aspect of my school's ASQA application and audit was a critical success factor. I am happy to use Murray again and strongly advocate his services to any future clients.

I would gladly recommend him

I worked with Murray recently in Strategix Group's applications for ELICOS and CRICOS licenses. During this time I found Murray to be professional, knowledgeable and clear in his directions of what was needed from us. His experience in the process was invaluable to our successful applications, as was his attendance at the ASQA audit. Finally he worked well with our team and I would gladly recommend him to help any RTO move into the international student market.

He demonstrated a powerful work ethic

Murray Barnett was my counterpart Director of Studies in Brisbane, while I directed business in Melbourne. At all times, he remained thoroughly professional, and was exemplary with his staff. He demonstrated a powerful work ethic, was committed to the industry in general, and particularly in 'doing it the right way'. It was always a pleasure to get on the phone and contact Murray to consult together over some work issue, or to resolve a strategic or practical problem together. I miss his partnership in the work endeavours, and wish him well.
