Maggie Farrar Program

The Country Education Partnership is very pleased to be working in partnership with Maggie Farrar on an exciting program focusing on enhancing and improving the learning opportunities for rural and remote students and staff through collaborative approaches during 2017.

“Enhancing Education Opportunities through Clustering and Partnering

Maggie Farrar #1

This great program is supporting twelve rural and remote clusters and partnerships (including early years, schools and further education organisations) who are committed to:

  • Establishing a cluster of education organisations as a way of providing learning into the future within their rural/remote community, or
  • Building and strengthening their current cluster and partnership arrangements.

The program involves education organisations regardless of whether they are:

  • Government education cluster,
  • Catholic education cluster,
  • Or cross sectoral cluster

The program has been developed to run throughout 2017 with the following key elements:

  • Access to the latest research and thinking on the power of clustering and partnering in provision of education;
  • A one day forum with Maggie Farrar during May to explore the real opportunities clusters and partnerships provide rural and remote education communities;
  • Support from Country Education Partnership staff in providing a critical friend to support the development of these clusters and partnerships;
  • A second one day forum with Maggie during August at a state-wide level.
