Guiding Principles

CASEO members seek a consistent national policy and regulatory approach to student exchange programs in Australia.

They work together to:

  • promote the importance and educational value of student exchange programs;
  • inform and influence policy makers at all levels of government on issues affecting the student exchange industry;
  • share best practice and encourage the continual improvement of child safety standards across the industry;
  • speak with one voice on key issues affecting the industry.

Current CASEO priorities include:

  • the establishment of a federal system of Working With Children Checks across Australia;
  • the extension of regulatory requirements to encompass non registered student exchange organisations;
  • establishing a 28 day program duration as the minimum requirement across all states and territories.
