澳大利亚政府针对国际教育改革采取进一步措施

The Minister for Tertiary Education, Senator Chris Evans, today welcomed the release of a consultation paper to inform the next phase of the Government’s response to the Baird Review of the legislation that governs international education in Australia.

澳大利亚高等教育部长克里斯•埃文斯(Chris Evans)参议员今天对政府为回应澳大利亚国际教育行业立法的“贝尔德复审”(Baird Review)而颁布的咨询文件表示欢迎。这是政府为回应“贝尔德复审”而采取的下一阶段的措施。

In March 2010, the Hon Bruce Baird released his report into the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000, containing a number of recommendations to strengthen the legislation to better protect international students and ensure Australia continues to offer a world class quality education.

2010年3月,布鲁斯•贝尔德(Bruce Baird)发表了关于《2000年海外学生教育服务法案(ESOS)》的复审报告,就加强立法更好地保障国际学生权益、确保澳大利亚继续提供世界一流的教育提出了多项建议。

Senator Evans invited submissions from stakeholders, including education peak bodies, regulators, providers, students and agents, who will have until 21 January 2011 to provide feedback to the Government.

埃文斯参议员邀请各利益相关方,包括教育行业组织、监管机构、教育院校、学生和留学中介于2011年1月21日之前向政府提交反馈意见。

“The Government is firmly committed to supporting the quality and integrity of Australia’s international education sector, having already introduced reforms to raise the bar for entry into the sector and give regulators greater flexibility to manage risk and enforce compliance with the legislation,” Senator Evans said.

“政府坚决致力于提升澳大利亚国际教育行业的质量,使其更趋健全完善,而且已经着手进行改革,提高国际教育行业准入标准,授予监管机构更大的灵活度来管理风险并加强合规管理工作。”埃文斯参议员说。

The release of the consultation paper follows the first phase of the Government’s response to the Baird Review through the legislative reforms introduced into Parliament on 27 October 2010.

此次咨询文件的公布是政府回应“贝尔德复审”,在2010年10月27日向议会提出立法改革的第一阶段工作的后续工作。

The changes already being implemented include: further strengthening provider registration requirements; measures to better manage risk in international education; introducing financial penalties for a wider scope of non-compliant behaviour; and enhancing the complaints and appeals processes by expanding the role of the Commonwealth Ombudsman.

已经实施的变化包括:进一步提高教育院校的注册审批要求;推出对国际教育更佳的风险管理措施;针对更大范围的违规行为采取罚款措施;通过扩大联邦政府调解员的职责,加强投诉与申诉案件的处理工作。

“The Phase Two consultation paper explores options for taking forward the remaining Baird Review recommendations,” Senator Evans said.

“第二阶段的咨询文件探究了为实施“贝尔德审查”所提出的余下建议而要采取的做法。”埃文斯参议员说。

The sector has been asked to provide feedback on:

政府要求教育行业对下列问题提出反馈意见:

  • risk assessment and management approach to the registration and ongoing monitoring of education providers delivering to overseas students;

对招收海外学生教育院校的注册登记和现行的监督措施的风险评估和管理方法;

  • strengthening the tuition protection framework;

强化学费保护框架;

  • a range of recommendations for making ESOS stronger, simpler and smarter; and

使《海外学生教育服务法案(ESOS)》更强大、更简化和更高效的广泛建议;

  • the regulatory effect on providers of these proposals and recommendations.

以及这些建议和提议对于教育院校的监管效果。
