The ITECA Covid-19 Education Response Taskforce has been formed. Comprising representatives of the higher education and the vocational training sector, plus each ITECA State/Territory branch, its purpose is to monitor developments, assess the large amounts of guidance sent to ITECA from different jurisdictions and collate it into a single ready to access resource. It reports to the ITECA Board and ITECA Chief Executive on the initiatives required to support the sector.

ITECA appreciates that these are difficult times for the independent tertiary education sector and we are committed to our task to understand the concerns of members and be a strong advocate to government to put in place the measures necessary to support the sustainability of the sector.
