A message from the Director

Welcome to the fifth edition of E-news.

This edition provides information on the transition arrangements for providers following the introduction of the new TAE10 Training and Education (TAE) package.

In addition, you can read about the VRQA’s involvement in the audit being undertaken by the Australian Universities Quality Assurance Agency (AUQA).

I would also like to take the opportunity to thank schools for submitting their 2009 Annual Reports in a timely manner. This enables us to fulfil our obligation to the public of providing information on schools through the State Register.

You can also read information about applications for school registration. The closing date for applications for independent schools is fast approaching.

In the previous edition of E-news, you would have read about the VRQA’s new Strategic Plan for 2010-2011. This is now available to download from our website.

We welcome any feedback from you on this edition and I encourage you to email your suggestions for future article topics to: vrqa@edumail.vic.gov.au
