Event description

Description

Join us over three Wednesday evenings for a 21st Century Skills and Competencies Symposium, where we'll discuss how we can future proof our students for successful futures. The three sessions will each have a special focus, with expert guest speakers (to be announced) to address the audience and stimulate discussion.

The sessions are planned to be held at Mundaring Christian College's new Secondary Campus in Parkerville.

Please register here on eventbrite to allow us to arrange catering and logistics accordingly (select a ticket for every date you can attend). We encourage you to share the event on Facebook with friends and family. We'd love as much of the community to benefit from these sessions as possible.


Session One on Wednesday, 6 September

Session one will focus on what skills are needed in the 21st Century, particularly for young people entering the workforce. We want to share with parents, students and the wider community what skills employers will be looking for, and what jobs will look like as we progress through the 21st Century.

Speakers: To Be Announced



Session Two on Wednesday, 13 September

Session two will focus on what educators can be doing now to prepare students for these changing conditions. We'll investigate how students are accessing technology and how we can be enabling students to develop core competencies such as critical thinking, reasoning, collaboration, creativity, and communication. Examples will be drawn from Mundaring Christian College's programs.

Speakers: To Be Announced


Session Three on Wednesday, 20 September

Session Three has a 'think tank' focus on what we can do better together with the wider community and by partnering with parents to ensure students leave year 12 with these key 21st Century Skills. We'll be inviting leaders from the local Chamber of Commerce and Industry, employers, local Councillors and community leaders.

Speakers: To Be Announced
