Schools and TAFEs

In 2015 Copyright Advisory Group – Schools (CAG), who represent the school sector, agreed to extend the three-year agreement with the Copyright Agency for an additional two years to 2017.

Under this agreement, the rate was fixed for the term at the 2012 rate: $16.934 per full-time equivalent (FTE) student.

As part of the agreement, the Copyright Agency and CAG Schools agreed that the parties will continue the current data collection system (separate surveys for hardcopy and electronic use).


All TAFEs are covered under remuneration arrangements under the Statutory Education Licence.

The Copyright Agency and Copyright Advisory Group – TAFE (CAG TAFE), negotiate the National TAFE agreement. A separate agreement with Victoria TAFE is negotiated with the Victorian TAFE Association.

The current National TAFE agreement is a lump sum agreement covering the period 2014-2018 and the Victoria TAFE agreement is also a lump sum agreement covering 2015-2018 with options to rollover. Both agreements provide for survey monitoring.
