This consultation paper discusses the current risk approach and puts forth a number of broad considerations for sector input. The questions raised in this consultation paper aim to guide sector feedback, and providers are encouraged to use this consultation process to submit their responses and ideas to TEQSA.
The Key Risk Findings on Australia’s Higher Education Sector Report is TEQSA’s first public release of its risk findings to the sector and other stakeholders. This is in line with TEQSA’s commitment to publish key data used or collected by the agency in order to be open and transparent in its dealings with Australia’s higher education providers.
TEQSA is required to self-assess its performance, and then obtain external validation of that self-assessment. The Higher Education Standards Panel has provided this external validation and the TEQSA accountable authority has certified the report.
The Professional Accreditation Bodies Forum was convened as an opportunity for TEQSA to receive feedback directly from professional accrediting bodies about the ways in which we can work together to effectively reduce duplication and streamline accreditation processes.
