Who won’t get a tick from TEQSA

TEQSA wants to tighten terms defining whether an applicant seeking to register a higher education provider meets the threshold standards and is a fit and proper person. The Tertiary Education Quality Standards Agency is seeking comment on its proposed detailed exclusions. These are mostly specific to the sector but lest any not entirely sound citizens are missed the agency has two exclusions at the end. “Whether the public is likely to have confidence in the person’s suitability to be involved in an organisation that provides higher education.” This should cover most people but if it doesn’t reason (h) adds, “any other relevant matter.” Should cover just about everybody.
