Pre-conference sessions on Sunday, 3 August, will cover quality and equity in the early years, Indigenous and vocational education and training, followed by a conversation with Julia Gillard, Board Chair of the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) and former Prime Minister of Australia.

Research Conference 2014 will be formally opened on Monday, 4 August by The Hon Christopher Pyne, Minister for Education.

Parents, teachers and the general public will find invaluable takeaways from the presentations at Research Conference 2014.
