ITECA Media Contact

The Independent Tertiary Education Council Australia (ITECA) brings together independent non-government providers in the higher education, vocational education and training sectors. ITECA provides the media with a single focal point from which to seek advice on matters affecting the tertiary education sector.

With the active participation of our members, ITECA offers an authoritative view on matters including:

ITECA’s Areas of Expertise ―

  • Regulation of independent tertiary education providers.
  • Funding of providers delivering accredited and non-accredited training programs.
  • International education provision by Australian tertiary education providers.
  • Issues associated with delivery and assessment of qualifications.
  • The changing nature of work and the need for workforce reskilling.
  • Matters affecting tertiary education providers as businesses and employers

The ability of ITECA to provide timely insights is underpinned by the fact that our members support more than 50% of the students studying with an independent vocational education and training provider.  Further, ITECA represents more than half of the independent higher education providers, a united community of informed and influential providers.

ITECA’s focus is on leading the debate on the reforms government needs to make which will give Australia a world-class tertiary education sector. The relationship between the higher education and the vocational education and training systems must change. ITECA’s evidence-based approach to policy and recognition by government as a leading source of advice are what have positioned ITECA as a leading voice for change.
