It is an annual event that will bring together the industry and partners to

  • help plan for future activities,

2018 IET Summit — Cairns

Delivering on Diversity

15 May 2018— save the date!

Building on the success of the inaugural 2017 IET Summit, the 2018 IET Summit will explore the theme ‘Delivering on Diversity’.

Compared to other Australian states, international education and training in Queensland is the most diverse.

Queensland represents diversity in all its forms — from our study offerings to student profiles and study locations. For instance, approximately 34% of students study outside Queensland’s capital city, compared to the national average of 5%. Diversity is the key to sustaining the international education and training sector.

We hope you will help us make the IET Summit a flagship event for IET in Queensland.

Over 350 attendees joined the Summit on the Gold Coast this year. You can learn more about the 2017 Summit by viewing our Summit 2017 gallery, watching the Summit 2017 video, reading the Summit 2017 Communique [PDF], or reading about the 2017 speakers, presentations and social media highlights.

TIQ IET Embracing Disruption banner

Embracing disruption to support the growth of our sector

28 March 2017

The theme of the inaugural Summit held in March 2017 was ‘Embracing disruption to support the growth of our sector’. The theme looked at disruption in its broadest sense, not just technological disruption but political, social and economic.

Run over a full day, the program incorporated a mix of plenary and panel/Q&A thematic breakout events. A key feature of the event will be to shine a light on Queensland case studies and approaches to international education.
