Session summary
In this inaugural seminar, the Centre's foundation director will describe the Centre's establishment and first 18 months of operations; and outline what has been learned from a significant process of consultation and analysis that will inform the Centre's mid-range priorities and strategies.

Looking ahead
We are pleased to foreshadow that in remainder of 2016 our presenters are:

  • September – Malcolm Elliott, President, Tasmanian Principals' Association, will focus on leadership and educational attainment
  • October – Professor Cate Taylor, Telethon Kids Foundation, will speak to the subject of early childhood development and early learning
  • November – Ms Jenny Gale, Secretary of the Department of Education, will share her vision for the mid-range future of education in the State

As this is the first time we have held this event, we would like to have indicative numbers to ensure that the venues are big enough. If possible please RSVP.
