In July, Vanessa and Maria attended the 26th National Vocational Education and Training Research Conference in Hobart. Not only did they attend, but Maria also presented a session on Engaging and Supporting Students from CALD backgrounds in VET. Flanked by teachers, professors, and industry specialists, Maria was in good company for her presentation and her session was very well received.
Keynote speakers at the conference were The Hon Matthew Groom MP—Tasmanian Minister for State Growth, Adrienne Dawson—Principal Advocacy Advisor for New Zealand Industry Training Federation, John Hooper—Executive Officer for Neighbourhood Houses Tasmania, and Stacey Joseph—Member and Education Specialist for Tasmanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Matthew Evans, Food Writer and TV Host of Gourmet Farmer and What’s the Catch, spoke about how to get the world’s best job and how re-training can open up a world of possibilities. That sounds like our kind of presentation!
