Join Us! Collaborating to Improve the Status of Teachers Forum

 In News, Uncategorised

Forum registration: 

On 29 March 2019, at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, the Australian Council of Deans of Education is bringing together education organisations to look at ways in which we can work collaboratively to improve the status of teachers.

Perspectives from different approaches will be put forward in highly interactive sessions before a wider discussion on collective actions we could take as part of a longer-term social change initiative.

ACDE will send out a discussion paper four weeks before the forum for participants’ consideration.
