Media Release: ISANA awarded funding to update and improve National Code Online Tutorial

Since 2007 ISANA has hosted an online tutorial covering Part D of the National Code, which assists in the understanding of the standards within the international education industry. The purpose of this online tutorial is to assist international education professionals to understand specific standards under the revised National Code. This tutorial has been especially useful as a staff training tool for those new to the international education industry.
Today Minister Birmingham announced $2.1m across 14 projects as part of the Enabling Growth and Innovation (EGI) Project.

ISANA is pleased to have been awarded $128,223 to upgrade and redesign the National Code Tutorial tool to bring it in line with recent changes to the National Code.

Speaking from the CISA conference

ISANA President Bronwyn Gilson said…
We are very excited to be able to make improvements and updates to such an important tool, over the last 14 years many new student services professionals have had their introduction to the National Code through the online tutorial and this will allow us to ensure that at a minimum there will be a basic level of understanding across the profession in Australia. It is essential that every person working in the sector understands and complies with the code and this will allow providers to be more confident of the level of understanding amongst their employees.”

This project is supported by the Australian International Education: Enabling Growth and Innovation project fund, Department of Education and Training. For further information, please visitwww.internationaleducation.qov.au.
