The Federal Education Minister has agreed to add the Diploma of Audiometry delivered by TAFE NSW to Schedule 3 of the list of approved courses eligible for VET Student Loans. The legislative instrument (the loans and caps determination) underpinning the list will be updated overtime.
HCIA is delighted the Government has responded in this manner.
HCIA advocated very strongly with Minister Birmingham’s office and his Department as well as more broadly within Government and the Senate. We also offered our support to AcAud and to the CEO of TAFE Directors.
