Private Education Providers

Sourcing quality teaching material and diverse content from textbooks, research papers, newspapers, reports, websites, blogs, journals and newsletters is essential to meeting both student and teacher expectations and to achieving the best possible education outcomes.

The use of this material, however, needs to be covered by an appropriate licence – otherwise the educational institution could be at risk of infringing someone’s copyright and breaching the Copyright Act 1968.

In addition to arrangements with peak bodies for schools and universities, the Copyright Agency also has individual agreements with more than 1,000 other education providers, including private colleges, RTOs, training arms, community colleges and kindergartens.
