CEP: Celebration, Engagement, Projection

The Country Education Partnership hosts a biennial Rural Learning Summit to explore issues and ideas relevant to rural learning.


Each time these rural learning summits are held, it is in a different rural community, attended by people involved in, or interested in, rural education.

Attendee numbers are strictly capped to a maximum of 70 participants to ensure the facilitation of an active discussion.

With each summit, a key focus area is identified for consideration, discussion and analysis. At the conclusion of each summit, a report is developed and circulated.

The summit provides an opportunity for rural and remote education and community leaders to be actively engaged in focused discussions to support, and enhance, quality learning within rural and remote Victoria.

The summit brings together rural leaders to explore a key theme impacting on, or relevant to, rural and remote education. Key themes in previous years have included:

  • Rural Learning Declaration
  • Engaging and retaining rural young people in learning
  • Clustering – Collaborating through Learning Communities
  • Rural Learning – Making it Happen
