Held bi-annually, CEP hosts a Rural Education Conference to both showcase and support the provision of high-quality education in rural communities. IMG_0079

As one of the only true cross-sectorial events within education in Victoria, the Rural Education Conference is an “unmissable” opportunity for education leaders, educators, school councillors and board members, rural communities and those interested in rural education to come together and explore how they can inspire, invigorate and challenge our rural and remote children and young people to realise their dreams.

CEP looks forward to once again hosting the Rural Education Conference in 2018.


Previous Conferences

2016- “Inspirational Teachers – Inspiring Rural Young People”
