Main reasons for the decision
As part of the initial registration process, TEQSA has assessed the registration and course accreditations submitted by the Health Education and Training Institute against the Threshold Standards for Provider Registration and Course Accreditation.
The Health Education and Training Institute has demonstrated that it has:
- an appropriate Academic Quality Assurance Framework for the maintenance of academic quality and integrity in its higher education operations
- a Strategic Plan that guides decision-making and future directions against the established key performance indicators with annual reporting of the outcomes
- strategies to monitor potential risks and to mitigate risks that may eventuate
- effective grievance processes and a range of strategies and resources to support students regardless of course delivery mode
- well-maintained physical and electronic resources and infrastructure sufficient to enable the achievement of its higher education objectives
The Health Education and Training Institute has demonstrated to TEQSA that it meets the Threshold Standards.
The Health Education and Training Institute application involved a transition of the New South Wales Institute of Psychiatry higher education operations. In light of this involvement, TEQSA will carefully monitor student outcomes over the next three years.
The registration and course accreditation covers delivery at all Australian sites.
