I attended the presentation this morning and was actually pleased to see that WA is now taking actions in line with the other states of Australia. I was impressed with the speakers and the room was full to capacity, as survival in the education industry now requires including offshore students into the business models. We have established local companies in India, Indonesia and the Philippines, and are a registered training organisation based here in Perth and Melbourne. We have struggled to be admitted to Study Perth after many years of trying, yet we have access to many foreign students via our offshore local offices. I note many CRICOS-registered organisations and universities struggle to secure supply of quality students,yet we have for many years tried to secure connections to refer to. Yes, a lot more work needs to be done and as Rod Jones mentioned a more cohesive approach will solve these issues a lot faster than they way it has always been done here in the west.
