Contracts and agreements between the parties
The standard contracts and agreements for use by government schools have been created to allow schools and RTOs to fully understand their respective obligations regarding the delivery of a VET qualification and/or units of competency. It provides the framework for both parties to negotiate the specific activities and conditions to be delivered by the external provider.
The standard contracts and agreements provide schools with the capacity to incorporate additional information or specifications in relation to student needs or other special requirements as agreed by both parties.
Standard contracts and agreements include the following schedules:
- Program Details
- RTO Personnel/School Personnel/Host School Personnel/Trainers
- Students’ Details
- Reporting Details
- Template — Request for RTO to contract with a Sub-Contractor
- Template — Contract Variation Notice
- Template — Agreement Variation Notice
- Equipment provided by School Council/Purchasing School
The standard contracts and agreements require that the RTO must provide the School Council with all reports, data or other information that the School Council may request to enable it to adequately assess the performance of the RTO. Additionally the RTO must permit the School Council, its employees, agents or representatives access to any premises where the services are being provided.
The Contracts and Agreements should reflect the range of activities that schools and the RTOs have agreed to be delivered. It also confirms the terms of the relationships between the two parties that schools are obligated to address.
Variations to contracts can be made using the Template — Contract Variation Notice or Template — Agreement Variation Notice, which are attached to the standard Contracts and Agreements.
