Third party provider engagement


There has been sector-wide recognition of the increased need for a streamlined, quality-assured process for engagement with third party providers (TPP) to minimise duplication of effort and maximise outcomes for students.

The Australian Collaborative Education Network (ACEN) has worked in collaboration with The University of Queensland (UQ) to produce best-practice guidance on the development of a collaborative relationship with TPPs.

The guide builds on best-practice, including the IEAA Guide to Working with TPPs, provides an introduction to engaging with TPPs, and provides suggested resources that individual universities and stakeholders can adapt to their specific requirements.
