Higher Education Applications

Higher Education Applications. For over a decade, Darlo Higher Education consultants have been helping organisations with their TEQSA applications. If you require support or help with higher education accreditation or new applications, be sure you discuss your plans and goals prior to embarking on this yourself. The applications are tricky and complex, and it is easy to lose your way in putting together the registration. In a free, initial consultation, we can talk about higher education including your preparedness, what to expect, and the requirements as per TEQSA and other regulators. 

TEQSA Compliance

TEQSA Compliance and Regulation. Australia’s national regulator of higher education is TEQSA, the Tertiary Education Quality Standards Agency. TEQSA is responsible for all university level qualifications, as per the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). If you are planning to become a new higher education provider, you will need to be well versed in higher education standards or if you are currently a registered higher education provider and require support with compliance, please reach out for a no obligations discussion. 

Governance Board Set Up

Governance is a critical attribute of effective higher education providers. To apply for a higher education provider, and to maintain ongoing compliance, it is critical that governance boards are established. Our team can support you with the development of your governance, with board maintenance, and ensuring that governance requirements are consistent and relevant to the higher education standards. Our team can also assist with recruitment and sourcing of higher education board members. 

Policy & Procedures Development

Higher Education Providers need to maintain a policy and procedure library. If you are not sure where to start, need someone to review your existing policies and procedures, or have a framework to develop your own policies and procedures, our team can help in the development of your policy and procedure library. Contact our team for a no obligation discussion on policy and procedure development. 

Course Design and Development

With over 25 years’ experience in course design and development, and having prepared courses for the University of Melbourne, University of Queensland, as well as a swathe of private companies and private higher education providers, our team of academic researchers and writers are ready to help you with your course design. In addition, we can support you with the establishment of course design and development governance. Why not give us a call to discuss your course design and development?

Benchmarking

Benchmarking is a critical component of learning design and good compliance. There are various levels of benchmarking that support institutional quality, teaching and learning, and professional performance. Ensuring that your institution and courses are benchmarking is an important mechanism for ongoing compliance. Establishing benchmarking partners can also be a critical initiative, too, and our team are ready to help you achieve benchmarking goals. Contact our team for a no obligation discussion. 

Audit + Reviews of Applications

If you are ready to submit your application, or undergoing a re-registration or re-accreditation of a course, our team can help you review and evaluate your application. Through a series of criteria, we can identify any specific gap or deficiency in your application, and ensure that you do not have glaring errors or mistakes in your application. If you have adverse findings, our team can also assist in the development of formulated responses. We have helped several larger higher education providers from folding, and we have advised legal firms on specialist higher education issues. Contact our team for a no obligation discussion.
