Audits are evidence-based investigations of documents and processes.

TASC uses two general approaches to audit:

  • desktop audits – course providers are asked to supply documents and materials to TASC. TASC undertakes a review of the materials and gives formal feedback to schools and colleges.


  • site-visit audits – TASC representatives visit schools and colleges to view teaching and learning materials and hold face-to-face discussions about the evidence presented. Formal feedback is given to the provider by TASC.


TASC audits are underpinned by the following auditing principles:

  • systematic
  • outcomes focused
  • evidence based
  • flexible
  • focus on continuous improvement
  • fair, open and transparent.
