Professional Learning Opportunities
Country Education Partnership provides a range of professional learning opportunities. These are developed in partnership with rural and remote education communities to build the capacity and skills of their community educators.
These take the form of conferences, forums, workshops and guest presentations. In addition, CEP has developed numerous partnerships with overseas organisations in provided Overseas Leadership Benchmark Tours – generally to United Kingdom and Canada.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CEP has had to rethink the facilitation of these professional development opportunities. However, we are working with a number of organisations and education leaders to provide digital opportunities for professional development. Professional development opportunities will be posted below when they are available.
