Default Student numbers on the rise

ENROLMENTS by private vocational colleges have defied a crisis of confidence in the sector to record 4 per cent growth over April last year. Senate estimates heard the embattled private sector now hosted almost 140,000 enrolments. It was 4 per cent up on 131,113 enrolments last April, federal education department group manager Colin Walters told the recent Senate education hearings.
Another 59 providers be registered this year, on top of the 100 new providers registered last year. The surge in new providers was accompanied by the closure of 16 providers last year, 15 this year and another closure displacing 400 students from a Gold Coast college just last week.
Some 1241 overseas student-accredited colleges of a total 1290 similarly accredited institutions had so far applied for re-registration under the government crackdown on dodgy colleges.
This meant some 49 such colleges - their risk status unknown - had so far failed to apply for re-registration before the end-of-year deadline for all providers.
