The Key Pillars of Quality Higher Education Delivery TM
Any organisation that seeks approval
to deliver higher education courses will need to meet the requirements
set down by the relevant legislation governing the registration of
higher education providers and accreditation of their courses.
The Tertiary Education Quality
Standards Agency (TEQSA) assumed responsibility for the regulation
of all higher education providers from 29th
To assess if your organisation
is ready to enter the higher education sector you must address six
key pillars of quality higher education delivery:
Does your institution have in place systems for good corporate, academic,
operational, administrative and financial governance?
Faculty & Scholarship:
Does your institution have access to teaching staff with the necessary
qualifications who can deliver the desired academic outcomes and are
active in scholarship?
Facility & Resources:
Do you have the appropriate infrastructure to deliver quality academic
Does your proposed course address a coherent body of knowledge? Is
the curriculum of a standard consistent with similar courses delivered
by other higher education providers? Does the course align with the
Australian Qualifications Framework?
Quality Assurance Framework:
Have you developed a quality assurance framework to guide, monitor
and measure your institution's activities, both operational and academic?
Do you understand the process to achieve regulatory approval?
