New Federal performance measures for university funding

Federal Education Minister Dan Tehan has announced four new conditions that will be applied to universities seeking Commonwealth funding from 2020. Universities will be required to report performance on four measures: graduate employment outcomes; student success; student experience; and enrolment of Indigenous, disadvantaged and rural students.

Let’s hope that universities use this planning time to ensure that their current systems for measuring graduate employment better reflect graduate employment and success in the creative arts.
