ITECA New South Wales Leadership

The Independent Tertiary Education Council Australia (ITECA) is the peak body representing independent providers in the higher education, vocational education, training and skills sectors across New South Wales.

Thanks to a highly engaged membership and the leadership of the ITECA New South Wales committee, we’ve seen funding reforms and red-tape reduction across the sector.
