'As a teacher in an RTO, you are always under scrutiny and expected to upgrade your skills and maintain continuous improvement. By going through the Right Way process, your employer has evidence that you are a quality educator.'

Tracey Bruce - Right Way accredited trainer and assessor


In a competitive industry, Right Way accreditation helps you stand out from the crowd. It’s aligned with VET sector and industry standards and can be used around the country.

The professional development points earned through the program prove that trainers/assessors have taken part in a range of current training and development activities and have been actively involved in the industry.


Benefits for trainers and assessors

Right Way accreditation gives you the following benefits:

  • Industry recognition of your industry experience and current skills and knowledge.
  • Certification to support your resume.
  • Use of the Right Way logo for your resume and marketing materials.
  • A point of difference and advantage in the market place when promoting your skills.
  • Employer confidence in your skills—your accreditation highlights your commitment to quality delivery.
  • Evidence for registration authorities that your RTO employer recruits quality trainers and assessors, as prescribed by the national mandatory standards for registering RTOs.
  • Access to professional development activities which provide both updated industry skills and knowledge and improved training and assessment skills.

It’s becoming easier to plan your professional development, with an ever-increasing number of Right Way industry and professional development partners offering pre-approved points.

Professional development points

During each year of accreditation, you have to earn professional development points by taking part in activities that expand both your training and assessment and your industry skills. The points must be earned evenly over each year of the accreditation period, as shown below.

Professional development points are allocated based on the type of activity you take part in. You can choose activities that suit your needs and claim points by providing proof of attendance.

Keeping track of your points

We have recently launched an online portal for accredited trainers and assessors.

Previously, Right Way provides you with a logbook when you receive your initial accreditation. You complete this logbook over the life of your registration, attach proof of your participation in professional development activities and submit this documentation when renewing.

The new online portal means there will be no more paper-based logbooks to deal with. You will be able to store all of your documents in one easy-to-access spot and keep track of your professional development points easily. You’ll also get reminders when you’re coming close to the end of each 12 month period so that you can make sure you’ve earned the 100 professional development points you need to keep your accreditation current.
