What is Tuition Assurance?

Tuition Assurance protects the interests of current and future students of The Redcliffe Aero Club (RTO 40971) courses that lead to an accredited award such as a Diploma in that it ensures students are given a suitable alternative course or have their course money refunded if the provider cannot provide the course for which the student has paid.

Under the VET Student Loans Rules 2016, the transitional approval of the tuition assurance operators, the Australian Council for Private Education and Training and TAFE Directors Australia, expired on 31 December 2017.
The Government has implemented interim tuition assurance arrangements from 1 January 2018, for domestic VET Student Loans, non-university FEE-HELP and remaining grandfathered VET FEE-HELP students.
These interim arrangements have now been extended to 31 December 2019.

The Government is continuing its commitment to expand the successful Tuition Protection Service (TPS) for international students to domestic students accessing a VSL or a HELP loan at a private or TAFE higher education provider. It is expected that new arrangements will be implemented on 1 January 2020. More information will be provided in 2019.

The Redcliffe Aero Club conforms to the requirements outlined in the VET Student Loans Manual for Providers.V3.1 April 2019. 4.3.

The Redcliffe Aero Club encourages all students to read through the below attachments and information in relation to our Tuition Assurance. All students will be provided with comprehensive information regarding Tuition Assurance during our “Pre-Enrolment Information Session” which is a compulsory component of the enrolment process.
