How we are governed

Senator Louise Pratt (Labor WA) wants to know how the Education Minister’s student funding bill will impact institutions and states

So, she asked the Department of Education, Skills and Employment a question on notice, suggesting they could provide the information without identifying individual institutions.

To which the department wrote back that its submission to the Senate inquiry on the bill; “contains an estimate of the total impact of the Job-ready Graduates package on the higher education sector. Further disaggregation at this time is not possible as details are still being settled with providers.” Settled enough to be used for the submission.
