International education and training best practice guides
Agent management best practice guide
International education agents are key partners in international student recruitment. Education agents are a major source for the recruitment of international students from a number of markets. Ensuring that Queensland has effective and efficient processes and continues to be responsive to market needs is critical.
The purpose of the guide is to better understand good practice in agent management, including the role and activities that providers and agents play in the international education industry. It also aims to provide practical tools and techniques for providers to work more effectively with agents.
Due diligence best practice guide
In light of changes in government policy and external market pressures, many VET providers are re evaluating their international strategies. New international engagement models involving international partners are being investigated.
The purpose of the guide is to provide the Queensland VET Sector with a tool for investigating the suitability of their international partner through a rigorous due diligence process.
Outbound mobility best practice guide
In 2007 the Queensland Government led Australia in the development of research on the barriers to mobility for the vocational education and training (VET) sector. In 2009 the Australian Government launched the VET Outbound Mobility Grants program supporting over 30 mobility projects since their inception. Most recently in 2010 the Australian Government launched a new national VET Outbound Mobility Toolkit. Despite these important developments in policy, resources and funding there is a still a long way to go in embedding outbound mobility into VET programs.
The Outbound mobility best practice guide aims to:
define the outbound mobility activities
develop and document successful models of outward mobility that can be employed by Queensland VET providers
identify barriers and opportunities in growing mobility in the VET sector.
