The Education Standards Board is supported by four operational teams who undertake regulatory work on behalf of the board.
School registration services
Led by Lynette Bellwood, the team registers and reviews schools and maintains the Schools Register. The team recommends schools for registration on the CRICOS; monitors schools’ compliance under the Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000 and registers student exchange organisations.
Gemma D'Angelo leads the quality assurance team. Authorised officers and staff receive and assess applications from education and care providers and services under the National Quality Framework (NQF) and develop and monitor the annual regulatory strategy.
In executing the strategy, the team is responsible for assessing and rating early childhood services and delivering education and support to regulated entities.
Compliance and investigation
Amanda Nash leads the compliance and investigation team monitors and responds to notifications and complaints received under the NQF. The team undertakes investigations and recommends statutory and administrative compliance action in response to non-compliance, in accordance with the National Law and regulatory principles and to deliver or advance regulatory outcomes.
The corporate services team supports our regulatory teams and board members to execute regulatory functions, led by George Keros. The responsibilities of the team include financial management, human resources, information technology, communications, records management and facilities management.
