RMIT University and online
15 February 2023

You are invited to the Policy Forum on Transforming Education and Training in Australia: Challenges and Opportunities, jointly hosted by the Australian Coalition for Education and Development (ACED), Adult Learning Australia (ALA), Women in Adult and Vocational Education (WAVE), the Jean Monnet Network on Social and Scientific Innovation on Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, and the European Union Centre of Excellence at RMIT University.

The Forum aims to contribute to the current policy conversations on transforming education and training in Australia from the perspective of ensuring that principles of equity, gender, and sustainability are embedded in employment, education and skills development, and more specifically:

  • To take stock of the current global and national policy debates and initiatives, and to help raise awareness of the opportunities linked to transforming the education and training systems in Australia, to address the identified challenges.
  • To engage with the inter-connected themes of lifelong learning, highlighting the often-missed sectors of adult learning, community education and vocational education and training, with a clear emphasis on equity as cross-cutting principle.
  • To facilitate the opportunity for civil society networks to come together collectively, to become visible as active actors in this policy space, and release a collective statement on transforming education and training systems in Australia.

The Forum will encompass morning and afternoon sessions and will be conducted in hybrid format, in person at RMIT University’s city campus in Melbourne and online via MS Teams.
