TIS HAS OPERATED IN VICTORIA SINCE 1977
Its members work closely with the state’s careers practitioners to promote further education as an option for secondary students when they leave school.
TIS ALSO HAS STRONG TIES
To the National Association of Prospective Student Advisers (NAPSA) – the professional body representing tertiary institute recruitment staff.

TIS IS RUN BY ITS FULL MEMBERS ONLY
All Victorian TAFEs and Universities are automatically members of the general committee. There is also a TIS Executive, which is made up of six members from the general committee and includes a president, treasurer and secretary along with the TIS executive officer. The TIS executive meets once a month, prior to a general meeting. Overseeing the running of TIS is the Management committee, which is made up of the Marketing/Student Recruitment managers from each university.
All full members are invited to all TIS events. Non-members must be invited by the Event Organiser after consultation with the schools attending.
