Event description

Description

The Peter Underwood Centre is pleased to bring together representatives from the education, government, non-government and business sectors to explore methods of collaboration with and for Tasmania’s schools.

This event is the culmination of Tom Bentley’s visiting scholarship with the Peter Underwood Centre and launch of his report: “Achieving More Together: Reflecting on Collaboration and Education in Tasmania’s Future”.

“Collaboration across Tasmania, between the institutions of formal education as well as wider networks of community, business and public organisations, is an essential contributor for a long term Tasmanian strategy to engage, enable and develop the whole of Tasmania’s population as participants in a learning system.”

- Tom Bentley
