ANU hosts its second Beyond Y12 national conference today and tomorrow
“We want to lead the national conversation on how we best prepare young Australians for learning, life and work after school,” VC Brian Schmidt says.
Education Minister Dan Tehan is expected to set the tone, speaking on “transforming the relationship between Y12 and tertiary education.”
The conference fits the strategy to establish ANU as a leader in expanding education engagement, launched by then DVC Marnie Hughes Warrington last year. “Not all students will want to study with us, but it is the role of the national university to affirm the value of tertiary education—vocational and university—whether it is with a local institution or one far away,” she said (CMM May 30 2018).
