Parent engagement workshopParent Engagement Workshop

CTS in partnership with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD), hosted  a one day professional development forum on Parent Engagement in 2014. Representatives from 22 specialist schools across the North West area were invited to attend.

The morning session was facilitated by Peter Garrigan, President of Australian Council of State School Organisations. Peter is a strong advocate for parent and community engagement in schools.

In the afternoon DEECD showcased a range of new resources to support career development programs and services for schools as well as to run career-related activities.

A second professional development session will follow soon. Watch this space for updates.
