In this submission, UA will focus on student income support payments, including Youth Allowance, Austudy and ABSTUDY.
As the institutions responsible for training most of the teachers in Australia, Universities Australia’s members are key stakeholders in all work to assure and improve the quality and effectiveness of ITE. Accordingly, Universities Australia looks forward to working with Government on the review. An effective review will benefit ITE students and
providers and – most importantly – school students across the nation.
In a year like no other, Australia’s universities have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent recession. Universities Australia has been counting the costs and identifying support measures that will help ensure Australians of all ages continue to benefit from a world-class higher education.
