Glossary term: Access and Participation Principal Committee

Acronym: APPC

A sub-committee of the former Standing Council on Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment (SCOTESE). It was one of four principal committees established in April 2010 by the then Ministerial Council for Tertiary Education and Employment (MCTEE) to replace the National Industry Skills Committee (NISC). Its role was to provide advice on matters relating to impediments to access to tertiary education and employment particularly amongst disadvantaged groups and to consider strategies to increase participation in tertiary education and employment.

The Committee was dissolved in April 2014 by the newly established COAG Industry and Skills Council (CISC) as part of efforts to streamline the governance arrangements of the national training system.
