Education Nation Conference | 7 June 2016

We could say that Education Nation is a new, national event for the F-12 education sector. It would be true after all, but it doesn’t really paint the whole picture.  We’re best to say…it’s something different. Why? Well, it’s all about how we think…

We took a step back and thought long and hard about what the real challenges facing Australian education are. And the more we thought about it, the more we realised how very different we are.

So, what is Education Nation?

It’s a new kind of education event. One that’s ABOUT Australian education, BY Australian education and FOR Australian education.
