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 January 2012.

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 outcomes?

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?
