The Transforming the Collection of Student Information (TCSI) project recently held Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) and Vocational Education and Training Student Loans (VSL) workshops in Canberra. Currently the presentations have not been published. CAUDIT is continuing to enquire to have any presentations available to assist institutions with their transition to TCSI and will communicate updates through the Student Data SIG.
In developments this month Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TESQA) has released a consultation paper that may change the Higher Education Data Collection with the changes currently forecast to occur in 2020 in a similar period to the TCSI project. These TESQA changes are in response to changes within TCSI and may expand the reporting and streamline reporting periods for TESQA. Submissions close 20th September 2019.
The Student Data SIG has grown to 57 members from 24 institutions. The SIG meets monthly with an active community. New members can join the Community through the sign-up page (https://www.caudit.edu.au/communities).
