Expressions of Interest – ACPET committees

Monday, November 6 2017

The Board is seeking expressions of interest from members who are interested in joining the Committee in their state or territory and/or a sectoral Steering Group (Higher Education, VET and International Education).

These committees have a very important role in assisting the Board in setting ACPET’s advocacy agenda, providing valuable insight into policy considerations and in engaging with their industry to promote quality private tertiary education. Put simply, ACPET cannot drive the changes needed in the sector without the contribution of these committees.

State and Territory Committee and Steering Group members are appointed by the Board. Each State and Territory Committee is chaired by the Director of the Board representing that State or Territory.

As in previous years, existing members are welcome to re-apply. The Board will be looking to appoint a mix of members, for example, those with longstanding ties to ACPET, new members and those operating in different sectors and locations.

Membership will be for a maximum of one year from the date of appointment.
