Glossary term: Tertiary Education Quality and Pathways Principal Committee

Acronym: TEQPPC

A sub-committee of the former Standing Council on Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment (SCOTESE). Originally called Regulation, Quality Assurance and International Engagement Principal Committee, 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 advise SCOTESE on matters relating to tertiary education pathways and integration as well as the regulatory framework, including training standards and the maintenance of the quality and international reputation of tertiary education in Australia.

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.
