Description of this FunctionDescription of this Function
This function encompasses all forms of tertiary education, including all university, technical and vocational education and training and apprenticeships which result in the conferring of an accredited degree at certificate level and up. This includes courses provided by Universities, TAFEs, Institutes of Technology and Colleges of Advanced Education. Please note this function is concerned with the administration and policies surrounding tertiary education; for individual agencies, see VF 382 Educational Institutions. Tertiary education prior to 1987 Prior to 1987, responsibility for tertiary education and training was split between a number of different sectors, including the Ministry of Education and Training (VA 1112; responsible for administration of university, technical and vocational education) and the Department of Labour (VA 2777; responsible for apprenticeships and industrial training). In 1987, the statutory bodies responsible for accreditation of apprenticeships (Industrial Training Commission; VA 900) and TAFEs (TAFE Education Board; VA 1176) were abolished and replaced with one body, the State Training Board (VA 3002). This consolidation reflected a larger change in the conception of tertiary education and training in Victoria. The primary statutory authority associated with tertiary education was the State Training Board (VA 3002), which was responsible for co-ordination and administration of the Government's training policies and administration of the technical and vocational training services provided by the state and public authorities. Administration of university education was primarily done by the governing councils of individual universities and by the State Government, with the Commonwealth Government providing the funding for universities.
