Program Description

A dynamic, spaced professional learning course that delves into the ‘how’ of family engagement.

Through the use of lenses such as wellbeing, literacy, numeracy, involvement and schemas, participants will explore strategies to embed family engagement into all aspects of their practice.

This course is a companion piece to the Active Partnerships in Learning (Prep to Year 2) course and schools are encouraged to consider sending representatives to each course to build wider understanding of authentic family engagement strategies.

  3. Play Schemas and Loose Parts
