The NHAA has been lobbying the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) to extend the teach out period for the Advanced Diplomas due to be phased out next year. From the beginning of 2016, the Advanced Diplomas of naturopathy, Western herbal medicine, homeopathy and nutrition will be removed from the health training package, with the new standard being a Bachelor degree.
A teach out period was available for those currently studying Advanced Diplomas, however the NHAA has been lobbying to extend this period in order to make it fairer for those students and their colleges. The ASQA Commissioners yesterday approved that the teach out period be extended to 31 December 2018. For more information see the ASQA website. Find out more about the change to Degree.
