TEQSA’s fourth annual conference concludes with ministerial address

29 November 2019

With more than 1,000 delegates from more than a dozen countries, TEQSA’s fourth annual conference concluded today with TEQSA panel discussions, and a speech from the Minister for Education, the Hon Dan Tehan MP. 

“TEQSA is a unique Australian approach to regulation of quality in higher education,” Minister Tehan said. 

“The key to TEQSA’s success, I believe, is its proportionate, risk-reflective approach to quality assurance that supports diversity, innovation and excellence.” 

Offering academics and sector specialists the chance to present research, network with peers, and ask questions of the regulator, the conference featured an interactive program of workshops, plenaries, Q&As, lightning talks and keynote presentations, addressing the theme Partnerships Driving Quality

Throughout the conference, TEQSA shared updates on its ongoing initiatives to streamline and increase efficiencies, and sought to further understand perspectives of providers in a very diverse sector. 

Furthering TEQSA’s international cooperation, Chief Executive Officer Anthony McClaran also signed three memoranda of understanding, with: Quality and Qualifications Ireland, Commission for Academic Accreditation, Ministry of Education of the United Arab Emirates, and Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications. 

“On behalf of everyone at TEQSA, we sincerely thank everyone for making our fourth conference our biggest and best yet, and we look forward to seeing you all again next year,” Chief Executive Office Anthony McClaran said.
