Training sector gets tough on unscrupulous operators
Monday, November 3 2014
On Thursday 30 October the Australian Council for Private Education and Training (ACPET) called together leaders from Australia's private higher education and training sector to develop an industry-led response to ensuring the integrity and quality of private teriary education.
The extraordinary meeting between the Australian Council for Private Education and Training (ACPET), English Australia, International Education Association of Australia, Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Chair of the Vocational Education and Training Advisory Board was convened by the new CEO of ACPET, Rod Camm, in response to reports about providers distributing misleading advertising, delivering poor training and soliciting students for courses they are possibly not suited to.
