Higher Education – Policy advocacy


The Independent Tertiary Education Council Australia (ITECA) affords you the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues to positively influence government policy that sets the regulatory and funding environment for independent higher education providers.

As a member of an ITECA National Reference Group, the issues that you'll be working on are both those that government asks ITECA for comment on, but also those that the ITECA membership raises proactively.


Making A Difference ― 
Issues Before National Committees


◾ Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) regulatory standards and enforcement.
◾ National funding of higher education and student loan programs.
◾ Regulation of international education providers and student visa issues.

You'll be working along side the ITECA Policy Team in Canberra who are highly experienced policy advocates and who are able to negotiate policy outcomes thanks to their established network of contacts that includes Ministers, Shadow Ministers and senior departmental staff and TEQSA management.


Get Involved ― 
ITECA National Reference Committees


◾ ITECA Higher education reference committee
◾ ITECA International education reference committee

Participation in an ITECA National Reference Committee affords allows you to meet peers from across the higher education sector.  The great thing is that you'll develop a shared understanding of the problems before independent higher education providers and what it takes to solved these.
