ITECA Victoria 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 Victoria.

Thanks to a highly engaged membership and the leadership of the ITECA Victoria committee, we’ve seen funding reforms and red-tape reduction across the independent tertiary education sector.
