Event description
This is the second policy forum on issues impacting young people's engagement with education.

About this event

In 2021, Flinders University College of Education, Psychology and Social Work, the Commissioner for Children and Young People, and the Australian College of Educators are hosting a series of Youth Policy Forums on issues impacting young people's engagement with education.

In this forum, you will hear from our Key Note Speaker Dr Jim Watterston, Dean Melbourne Graduate School of Education, University of Melbourne and former Director General, Queensland Department of Education on his 'Those Who Disappear' paper. Professor Watterston will contextualise what this means for SA in respect to the challenges and the opportunities to better address school detachment.

Professor Watterston will be followed by Q&A with a stakeholder panel including:

  • Mr Rick Persse - Chief Executive, Department for Education
  • Dr Neil McGoran - Director, Catholic Education South Australia
  • Ms Carolyn Grantskalns - Chief Executive, Association of Independent Schools of South Australia

The panel will be moderated by the Commissioner for Children and Young People, Helen Connolly.

Designed for a broader audience of educators, youth workers, policy makers, researchers, advocates, and service providers, the Forums will examine critical issues faced by young people and how we can work together to respond to the challenges.

Light refreshments will be provided free of charge courtesy of the Credit Union SA, from 4:30pm for a 5pm start.

The event will adhere to COVID-19 Safe Guidelines.

Tickets are limited and we expect strong interest.

For any enquiries, please email CommissionerCYP@sa.gov.au or phone 08 8226 3355.
