A gathering of education experts from around the world, The Asia Society Global Cities Education Network symposium will be coming to Victoria in 2019.
It’s a nod to Victoria’s progressive approach to education and its success when compared to other states.
Victoria’s mean reading score in the 2016 Program of International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) is significantly higher than the Australian average and only seven out of 61 countries are outperforming Victoria.
The event, which provides a forum for educational leaders to share ideas on how to build a world-class education system, will bring together education experts from 11 cities including Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong and Toronto.
Participants will explore themes key to the success of any education system, including equity, innovating to spread best practice and providing effective career and technical education.
The Victorian Government has made significant steps towards these aims including providing $566 million in equity funding, building 10 Tech Schools and reforming the training system and careers education.
