I know many of you will be interested in this opportunity.

RMIT’s Policy, Strategy and Impact team, together with Social Ventures Australia, invites you to join an online forum to discuss the findings and potential impacts of a new report – Unleashing the Power of the Collective in Education.

The report by RMIT’s Policy, Strategy and Impact team provides an evaluation of The Connection – a Collaborative Leadership Development Network – created by Social Ventures Australia to support school leaders and teachers in disadvantaged school communities to develop collaborations with other like-minded school leaders, industry and the community, to improve student learning.

The report found:

“The Connection is living evidence: a working model for system-wide school improvement and collaborative leadership development at a school, community and system level. It sets a distinctive example from which other education systems in Australia and beyond can learn, adopt and adapt practices to achieve system-wide school improvement.”

Join an expert panel, including two of the report’s co-authors, as they discuss the promising findings from the report and what we can learn from the evaluation to help address inequality and disadvantage in Australian education and beyond.

Hear from:

Report co-authors, Tom Bentley, Executive Director for Policy and Impact at RMIT and Aarushi Singhania, a Senior Advisor, Education Research within RMIT’s Policy and Impact Team; SVA’s Sue Cridge, Director, Education, Bright Spots Schools Connection and Christine Cawsey AM, Principal, Rooty Hill High School.

When: Wednesday, September 23 at 1pm – 2pm.

Where: Microsoft Teams Live. Registrations required via Eventbrite.
