We engage across the higher education sector to help foster a shared understanding of our role and regulatory approach, encourage a culture of provider self-assurance and increase our transparency.

We collaborate with a range of stakeholders to:

  • build a common understanding about our role, how we regulate and what to expect from us
  • help providers understand and maintain their responsibilities under the standards
  • gain input into changes to our regulatory approach
  • gather intelligence to inform our understanding of regulatory risk
  • design regulatory approaches that are well-informed and provide clear support for providers to self-assure and continuously improve.

This engagement is an essential part of our regulatory approach.

Our stakeholders

Our approach focuses on building long-term relationships with stakeholders including:

  • Australian, state and territory government departments and agencies
  • individual higher education providers
  • peak body representatives for higher education providers
  • professional accreditation bodies
  • students

  • international partners
