Renewal of registration
Report on renewal of registration of International Institute of Business and Technology (Australia) Pty Ltd
TEQSA has renewed the registration as a higher education provider, under Section 36(1) of the TEQSA Act, of International Institute of Business and Technology (Australia) Pty Ltd (IIBT) for a period of three years to 19 March 2018 in the provider category of Higher Education Provider.
TEQSA has, under subsection 32(1) of the TEQSA Act, imposed one condition on the registration of IIBT as a higher education provider requiring IIBT to provide TEQSA with:
- A plan to enhance scholarship among staff teaching IIBT's higher education course by 19 May 2015.
- A report on scholarly activities undertaken by IIBT staff in the year prior to the report, with the report to be provided by 28 February of each year after 2015 in which IIBT is registered as a higher education provider.
Main Reasons for Decision
As part of the renewal of registration process, TEQSA has assessed the application submitted by IIBT against the Threshold Standards. The scope of the assessment included all its Australian sites.
TEQSA considers that the decision to apply conditions to IIBT's registration is consistent with the basic principles for regulation in Part 2 of the TEQSA Act, as IIBT is at risk of not complying with a number of the Threshold Standards.
The broad issues which relate to the IIBT's registration include:
- Provider Category Standard 1.4, in relation to the scholarly activities undertaken by IIBT staff.
