Angela and the Vivacity team helped us get our RTO registered with ASQA which we are so excited about. Her knowledge, experience and understanding of the processes, regulations and legislation were invaluable and honestly, we couldn’t have done it without her.  We would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat! We look forward to launching our RTO and hope to work with Angela and Vivacity again in the future.

On behalf of the MEA Board and myself I would like to thank you all for your support, guidance and work in making this happen for Meetings & Events Australia.

I must say that when I started the process it was overwhelming and very stressful. I thought that MEA had no hope in being renewed as a RTO. This could not have been achieved this without the Vivacity team.

It has been a very pleasant experience working with you. Your organisation is informed, professional and experienced in all that is RTO.

MEA looks forward to continuing to work with you to ensure that MEA remains compliant and up to date with all the changes that occur in delivering education to the meetings and events industry.

I have worked with Angela and known her for several years now, I find her knowledgeable about the VET environment, a very capable businesswoman and very easy to get along with. Angela shares a passion for VET, building her staff and business capability and improving outcomes for the sector. It’s great to work with professionals like Angela who want to make a positive difference to our sector!

Holy Family Services is a small boutique RTO who rely heavily on Vivacity for our compliance day to day operations. Recently we conducted an internal audit to stay on top of any non compliance issues we may have before an ASQA audit. I was very happy with the service, the advice and the follow up through Vivacity and the entire team. They carry out support, continue the support throughout the year and do what ever it takes to ensure our RTO has all the correct information. I would like to thank Angela and her team for continuing to support us here at Holy Family Services.

I would like to thank you for the expertise and commitment you provided during our recent response to an official complaint received by ASQA against our RTO.

Your guidance and expertise enabled us to respond successfully to a number of non-compliances identified during the ASQA complaint investigation. These included re writing our Training and Assessment Strategy, re writing assessment material, describing accurately our trainers’ credentials and clarifying information distributed to students prior to enrolment.

This enabled our organisation to be deemed compliant and to avoid an ASQA decision to imposed sanction and remove one of our qualifications from our scope.

Vivacity RTO Coaching has been our compliance partner since October 2013 and has greatly assisted us in day-to-day management of compliance and successful re registration in 2016.

I would have no reservations recommending your services to other RTO’s and look forward to working with you into the future.

Angela and her team are proactive and on top of things. I would recommend Vivacity in a heartbeat to anyone looking at compliance or event help with anything to do with running an RTO as the vast knowledge the team has is very impressive. I hope my testimonial will make you choose them, as they are the best out there.

The whole experience has been an extremely pleasurable and satisfying one. Vivacity’s exceptional skill in guiding us through the process was evident early on and their expertise and knowledge were invaluable to our cause.

Not only were we successful in the first attempt with our application, Vivacity remained constant contacting us and happily and promptly answered questions we continued to pose to them post application. Talk about old fashioned customer service.

From the entire Narbil team, we can’t thank Vivacity enough for their dedication, professionalism and generosity – your efforts are greatly appreciated.

I know Angela very well from last few years as we worked together set up our RTO (Pacific College Sydney). Angela and her team is very sincere, dedicated and co-operative about their service. Team Vivacity always works for the betterment of their clients. They try to know their clients very well, listen to them, and provide the best possible solutions. I hope Vivacity will be one of the leading consulting firm in Australia by continuously providing their wonderful services. God bless Angela, God bless Vivacity

I have used Vivacity Coaching & Consulting to undertake our initial application and audit. Fantastic!

Now that we are running with wet sales, Vivacity is always there for advice.

As an annual member they provide us with all the current RTO forms and documents specific for our company.

I have had the occasion to us Vivacity to undertake the add to scope process for new units and courses. This has been absolutely amazing, as they work you through all the documents and build the background, where we only need to add relevant information. Never a problem with approvals.

I can highly recommend Vivacity for any RTO in any field, as they make compliance and operating an RTO a sane process!

If you are out there trying to do it all by yourself, take off the rose coloured glasses and at least become a member with Vivacity, you will never look back!

Give Angela and her team a call.

We are delighted to recommend Angela and her team at Vivacity. The road to accreditation is long and somewhat arduous. It can be a very steep learning curve and quite daunting on your own. We can’t speak highly enough of Vivacity’s thoroughness in preparing us and the level of support that helped us all the way through the accreditation process and through our initial audit. We had no rectifications and have just received news that our application has been approved. Thank you Vivacity!

Angela helped us through the new requirements to become a Registered Training Organisation. She was able to give us the infrastructure needed to pass the audit procedure. I have had 20 years in vocational education and training but mainly in large organisations where I concentrated on teaching, learning and assessment whilst other departments in the organisation took care of the quality control and funding matters. Angela offers this infrastructure and advice to small organisations who don’t have that luxury and could be overwhelmed by the registration process and still have a lot to offer the field in more innovative ways of delivery than large TAFEs are able to offer.

Angela is very knowledgeable about the Education & Training industry. Angela’s expertise,energy,enthusiasm,professionalism and condor make her a stand out in her chosen field. Her work at our college ensured that it met the strict requirements to be on the Approved Provider List under the DET requirements. Angela seems always committed to deliver high quality work, on-time with a professional and friendly attitude. I can certainly recommend Angela’s work.

Before working with Vivacity we had a number of Compliance issues throughout the organisation, which was concerning due to the fact that we had a Registration Renewal coming up. We had worked with Vivacity prior to our renewal and decided to work with Vivacity again by purchasing their Renewal Registration Package. This package included everything we needed to ensure that we were compliant, including Policies, Procedures and vast range of forms and other documentation for managing our compliance. Since hiring Vivacity to work with our organisation we have a much better streamlined approach to compliance and our staff understand their rights and responsibilities against the standards. Thanks in advance for helping me out.

DET Funding audit response, SystemsCheck, ReBoot Package | 2012 to 2016


“Our organisation has been working with Angela and Vivacity Coaching and Consulting for around 6 months, during this time we have found Angela to be very knowledgeable in compliance and the training industry, which I attribute to her continual development of her skills through engaging with industry and government bodies. Angela has assisted us with the transition from VETAB to ASQA, including undertaking a review of our policies and procedures through an audit process, which will prepare us for re-registration.

We are currently working with Vivacity to assist us with an Addition to Scope application, Angela has once again provided extensive knowledge and experience across a range of industries and in particular has demonstrated extensive skills in adapting and implementing Training and Assessment Strategies against the new ASQA requirements.

I would highly recommend, and have done so on a number of occasions, Vivacity Coaching and Consulting to any industry who require assistance with Compliance.”

“Angela’s knowledge and understanding of the VET sector is a great support, often breaking down complex issues into small achievable objectives to complete to reach our goal.

I would highly recommend Angela’s services to any RTO who wants to be a leader in providing best practice training and showing a high level of compliance”
