Higher Education – Stakeholder Engagement

A key role for the Independent Tertiary Education Council Australia (ITECA) is to build collaborative partnerships between the independent higher education sector, government and the business community.

The focus of ITECA’s stakeholder engagement is to put the independent tertiary education system at the forefront of the debate on the future of higher education in Australia.  The advice, expertise and guidance of the ITECA membership are vital to the advice that ITECA provides stakeholders.

Key stakeholders that ITECA shares an interest with include:

  • Business Council of Australia (BCA)
  • Group Of Eight Australia (Go8)
  • Universities Australia (UA)
  • Independent Higher Education Australia (IHEA)
  • Council of Small Business Organisations Australia (COSBOA)

Additionally, ITECA has established relationships with key Australian Government and state / territory government departments responsible for higher education, a relationship driven through ITECA’s state offices.  ITECA staff enjoy an open an ongoing dialogue that works to keep members not only up to date with policy changes, but to also influence these too.
