As an education Agent you will be aware that the VET FEE-HELP scheme will cease on 31 December 2016, to be replaced by the VET Student Loans scheme from 1 January 2017.
Under the VET Student Loans scheme, the activities of Agents is very restricted – as will be the revenue opportunities from the capped courses.
The implication of these reforms on your business are clear.
Without a proactive strategy for 2017, your business will change dramatically.
Campus is an education business that delivers online Benchmarked Courses. A Benchmarked Course is a non-accredited course mapped to its accredited counterpart.
As such, Campus is not an RTO or VET FEE-HELP provider and operates outside legislation governing these bodies.
Campus was launched to resolve an escalating issue in education in Australia – rising costs due to onerous government regulation, making education unaffordable to all but the elite (including debt accumulation through the HELP schemes).
Complex government regulation burdens education providers with layers of compliance cost. These costs get passed to students in tuition fees. And most often, the regulation and additional cost, does not result in an improved learning outcome.
Campus Benchmarked Courses provide students with a substantially similar learning experience for a fraction of the cost.
Your business is at risk.
It's at the whim of constantly changing government policy.
Recent regulatory reforms have trimmed margins. And changes proposed for 2017 will cut them even further, which may put your very business existence at risk.
Campus is offering a limited number of Agents the opportunity to enter into an Agency Agreement to promote and sell Campus courses and educational products.
