Supportive silence for TEQSA

People grumble about the regulator, just not in public

The federal audit agency’s report, released late Thursday was not scathing about the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency but it did point to a bunch things it could do better.

To which the HE community responded by not responding.  As of this morning only the Independent Tertiary Education Council Australia has expressed an opinion; noting some of TEQSA’s failings the audit identified but overall suggesting TEQSA is, “a good regulator and one that is positively engaged with the independent tertiary education sector.

“ITECA members are largely comfortable with the approach of TEQSA to its compliance activity and there is a shared belief that it is the best of the four regulators in the tertiary education sector across Australia.”

CMM is taking the silence of generally vocal lobbies as concurrence.
