Student recruitment can help students prepare for higher education, but there are many more challenges ahead.
Here are some of the most important lessons from the report, released today by the Australian Institute of Education.
What is the ASEC?
The Australian Education Commission is a federal department of education.
The ASEC is responsible for administering the Higher Education Quality Commission (HEQC), which is an independent body that advises the government on higher education policy.
The report outlines how the commission can assist students in learning about their options.
Where do you start?
The report offers three main ways to help Australians learn more: 1.
Download the National Higher Education Strategy 2016 (PDF, 1.9MB) and its content and materials to ensure students understand their options and the government’s approach to funding higher education.
This guide covers everything from the funding to the course to where to apply.
You can also download a copy of the draft HEQC 2020-2021 (PDF) for your school or college.
This is a snapshot of the 2020-21 HEQP, the draft plan to replace the current Higher Education Plan (HEP), and the policy guidance that is currently being prepared.
Visit the website of the Department of Education’s Higher Education Commission (HECC).
This is the national agency that supports schools and colleges in delivering higher education to students.
You will find the latest national guidance, including the HECC 2020 strategy, which outlines how students can prepare for a post-secondary education and how to access funding.
Attend a National Higher Ed Strategy meeting to learn about the future of higher education and the changes being made to ensure the future for Australia’s future generations.
This meeting is held on a regular basis to assess how the higher education system can best meet the needs of future students.
