The memorandum aims to ensure Challenger graduates from diploma or advanced diploma courses can move into a tertiary level course at Notre Dame.

Challenger Institute chief executive Liz Harris said the agreement showed their commitment to supporting higher education.

‘This is a very exciting partnership with great educational benefits,’ she said.

‘Together we are working to ensure the best learning opportunities for every student.’

Notre Dame vice-chancellor Celia Hammond said the university looked forward to working with Challenger to promote broader higher education options for all students.

‘Both are committed to establishing seamless pathways between learning programs and qualifications across sectors to ensure our students can contribute meaningfully to society in their future careers,’ she said.

The organisations signed a similar agreement last July, for business and health and sciences courses.
