Independent Higher Education Australia (IHEA) CEO Dr Peter Hendy represented Australia’s independent higher education sector by appearing and speaking at the Productivity Commission’s ‘Productivity Inquiry’ public hearing on 7 November 2022.
The Productivity Inquiry is reviewing Australia’s productivity performance with a view to recommending an actionable roadmap to assist governments to make productivity-enhancing reforms.
Dr Hendy elaborated on two final submissions IHEA had earlier provided to interim reports of the Productivity Inquiry: Interim Report 1: Key to Prosperity and Interim Report 5: From Learning to Growth.
Interim Report 1 provides the broad productivity context for the exploration of productivity-enhancing reforms detailed in a series of forthcoming interim reports. IHEA's final submission to this report was received by Productivity Commission on 20 October 2022.
Interim Report 5 outlines potential ways governments can improve education outcomes to support future productivity. IHEA's final submission to this report was received by Productivity Commission on 21 October 2022.
