Graduate Diploma in Alcohol and Other Drug Addiction Counselling: Accreditation 28 June 2017
Report on accreditation of two higher education courses of study offered by Chisholm Institute
A delegate of TEQSA has accredited, under section 49 of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 (the TEQSA Act), the following higher education courses of study offered by Chisholm Institute for a period of four years until 28 June 2021:
- Graduate Certificate in Family Violence
- Graduate Diploma in Alcohol and Other Drug Addiction Counselling
Main reasons for decision
TEQSA has determined that the two higher education courses of study submitted by Chisholm Institute for accreditation comply with the Provider Course Accreditation Standards and arrangements for delivery at all Australian sites.
TEQSA considers that the decision to accredit the course of study for a period of four years is consistent with the basic principles for regulation in Part 2 of the TEQSA Act. The shortened accreditation period provides an appropriate timeframe for TEQSA to review the course to ensure on-going compliance with the Threshold Standards, given that this will be the first AQF level 8 course delivered by Chisholm Institute, and risks identified in relation to:
a) PCAS 5.5 in relation to the benchmarking of academic standards and academic performance; and
b) PCAS 5.6 in relation to ensuring appropriate course progression and completion.
