Accreditation Reviews

In addition to annual monitoring, accredited qualifications will be subject to reviews.  This section of the Handbook outlines the different types of accreditation reviews and the procedures for each.


We are developing this section in conjunction with stakeholders and the Education Transition Reference Group.


Under the new accreditation model, qualifications will not be accredited for a fixed period of time.

In order to retain accreditation, qualifications will be subject to reviews through which ongoing compliance with the Standards will be monitored.

There are three types of review:

  1. Regular reviews – undertaken periodically; focussing on specific matters identified through the data and narrative received as part of annual monitoring 
  2. Occasional reviews – uncommon; undertaken outside the regular review cycle and may be initiated for one or more of the reasons outlined in Section 11 of the Accreditation Rules
  3. Cause for concern investigations – rare; undertaken in the event of serious issues or allegations relating to a qualification, and which may affect accreditation

A decision to undertake a regular or occasional review is not necessarily an indication of concerns about a qualification.

ARB will engage with providers about any review that will be undertaken – to discuss the focus of the review, any requirements, and how the review will be conducted.

There will not be an additional fee for reviews outside the annual accreditation fee.
