From Student to Graduate: Authentic Partnerships for Quality Outcomes

This year’s theme “Authentic Partnerships for Quality Outcomes” aims to provide opportunities to learn new ways to enable students to achieve their educational and life goals through actively working together.

We invite you to help us shape a dynamic program of seminars, workshops and papers so that outcomes from the conference can inspire you to influence and shape your practice and approach to supporting students.
