Sharing Excellence: Assuring Quality

The Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) is pleased to announce its collaboration with Higher Ed Services (HES) for the first TEQSA sector conference.
The conference, to be held in Melbourne on 9 November, will act as a ‘lead-in’ to HES’ annual two-day “Higher Education Compliance and Quality Forum”.

TEQSA CEO Mr Anthony McClaran said that his Agency looked forward to  the opportunity for open discussion with Australia’s higher education sector about ideas to strengthen quality assurance.  

“TEQSA is very happy to work with HES for this conference. I encourage all higher education providers and stakeholders to come along and be part of the conversation as we investigate opportunities and challenges facing quality assurance,” said Mr McClaran.

Mr Graeme Dennehy, Chair of the HES Board said he was delighted that HES and TEQSA are working together to present a conference that will showcase Australia’s vibrant, diverse and innovative higher education sector.

“HES is a not-for-profit company owned by Universities Australia that works for, with and on behalf of the sector,” he said. “We are extremely pleased to support the TEQSA conference and provide the sector with the opportunity to network and address some of the most topical and significant issues for universities and private education providers.”

The conference will feature thought-provoking plenaries, panel discussions and roundtable sessions while the two-day HES forum will continue the theme and include keynote presentations and streamed sessions.

The combined three-day event will run from 9 to 11 November at Melbourne Airport’s Park Royal Hotel. Further details and registration information is online at
