Higher Education Support Act 2003
See section 6-1 .
A body has to be approved as a VET provider before its students can receive VET FEE-HELP. This Part sets out VET provider application and approval processes.
VET providers are subject to the VET quality and accountability requirements.
As part of the phasing out of VET FEE-HELP assistance, VET provider approvals in force immediately before 1 July 2021 are revoked by clause 29 of this Schedule. However, under that clause, provisions of this Act, the VET Guidelines and conditions on the approvals may continue to apply to a body that had been approved as a VET provider.
The Minister must not approve a body as a VET provider after 4 October 2016: see subclause 6(5) .
