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.

Join the VIC/TAS branch for PD: International Student Mental Health

Next VIC/TAS ISANA PD SESSION and AGM
AGM- BRANCH COMMITTEE NOMINATIONS AND ELECTIONS
 
Warm greetings to ISANA members and Non-members alike. I would like to remind you about our next PD session: International Students Mental Health – Common issues, challenges, strengths and useful support strategies.  There is evidence that 1 in 4 people aged 15-24 will experience mental ill-health in one year. More specifically, tertiary students with mental health issues are at higher risk of dropping out early, academic failure, limited social connections and poor health outcomes. 

This topic is relevant to all of us as we work hard every day trying to make a difference in the lives of international students. Sometimes we feel powerless to do anything positive which is why this PD is so important. The presenters bring a wealth of knowledge and experience and will provide a way for you to think about wellbeing and importantly, how to improve your own and that of others. Please see below for more information and registration details.
 
ISANA VIC/TAS 18th state conference, Melbourne

ISANA VIC/TAS 18th state conference, Melbourne

Victorian Parliamentary Secretary Frank Mcguire opened the 18th VIC/TAS conference held at William Angliss Institute last month.

The committee had designed a very comprehensive program and participants were able to walk away with a tool box of ideas to take back to their work place.
Of the 121 attendees It was exciting to see that 25% were students due to the generous grant From Study Melbourne.

There were many opportunities for networking and it was a day of gratitude to all the professionals especially the student advisors who have worked tirelessly to enhance the student experience.

The One day conference has become an important event in the Victoria / Tasmania branch professional development calendar and has grown in strength over the years.

If you have suggestions for PD or events in your state you should contact your local branch committee or submit suggestions here: PD suggest
