Vocational Education & Training, Higher Education

Summary —

The Australian Government, through the Department of Education’s Enabling Growth and Innovation Program project, has developed materials to help prevent international student exploitation. For education providers these materials include information on the role of education providers and best-practice models to better support international students. 

Key Issues —

The Department of Education is encouraging all education providers to use the resources developed through the Enabling Growth and Innovation Program to support international students in Australia. 

Information available to education providers will help equip them to support students and prevent workplace exploitation of international students. 

      Information for Education Providers  —

  • A toolkit that outlines the role education providers play in helping to prevent exploitation of international students, and a guide on how to distribute resources to students; 
  • A best-practice model, self-assessment tool and workbook designed to help guide education providers on improving internal policies and practices to better support international students in preventing workplace exploitation.

The resources are aimed at independent tertiary education providers that support international students.

                 Department of Education Toolkit  —

The Department of Education is encouraging education providers to make information and materials widely available at their institutions. 

Independent providers play a significant role in Australia’s fast-growing international student education market contributing to Australia’s export growth and cultural diversity.
