Event description

Description

The Widening Participation Masterclass will enable attendees to learn more about the philosophy of widening participation in Australian higher education, including a historical context, Dawkins and Bradley reforms, Rudd/Gillard participation targets and the development of equity categories for students. Attendees will also discuss the Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program (HEPPP) and the benefits for current students. Practical examples of adjustment scheme allocations (such as EAS) will be worked through and attendees will discover how schemes like HECS-HELP provide equity performance indicators. This masterclass will demonstrate how students can maximise adjustment factor schemes when applying for further study across any institution in Australia.

Attendees have the opportunity to meet, upskill and network with other career education professionals and QTAC industry experts in a relaxed and informative environment.

FAQs

What should I do before the Masterclass?

This Masterclass assumes that all attendees are familiar with the basic principles of a QTAC application and how adjustment schemes like EAS broadly function. If not, attendees are encouraged to attend the QTAC Insights Workshop prior to attending a QTAC Masterclass.

What should I bring to the workshop?

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own device for ease of use. Tea, coffee and light refreshments will be provided.

I want more professional development! What other options are available?

For the first time in 2019 (and informed by feedback in 2018), QTAC will be offering specialty masterclasses in three key areas: Higher Education Sector Insights, Widening Participation Opportunities and Unpacking the ATAR. Masterclasses are a shorter, more intensive option for the education professional wanting to upskill in a specific knowledge area. Details are on the QTAC website and bookings are available via EventBrite.

I just want to help my students to apply via QTAC. What are my options?

Book in a QTAC How to Apply presentation. Our experts will come to your school (during class hours or in the evening) and explain to your students how to make the most of the application process in an engaging and informative presentation. Booking details are on the QTAC website.

Alternatively, education professionals can download the 2019 How to Apply presentation and use it as a tool to assist in application discussions. This will be available in early 2019 on the QTAC website.

Is my registration transferrable?

We understand that sometimes work commitments take precedence, so you can transfer to another Masterclass date or change the name on your registration, however this must be completed by close of business the day before the workshop. If you encounter any last minute problems, please email us on presentations@qtac.edu.au

Is my registration refundable?

Please read QTAC's refund policy.
