Kickstart the year and join us at this year’s Mackay Campus Forum to discover what’s new in 2020 and how we are supporting you and your school as Queensland continues the transition to ATAR.

We are pleased to again offer this event as a formal, two-hour continuing professional development opportunity. To ensure you receive a certificate after the event please register to attend.

Highlights of this year’s event include:

  • Sharing details on CQUni’s Principal’s Recommendation Scheme and how it can offer a valuable alternative pathway for students in 2020
  • Catching the first glimpse of our newly launched, dedicated high school pages on our website designed to help parents and students navigate ATAR and understand the pathway to further study
  • Receiving a printed copy of our NEW ‘High School to Uni and TAFE’ guide
  • Plus, hear from Guest speaker Steve Williams, Program Manager Social Innovation at CQUni, presenting ‘Generation Z – Future Change Leaders’ where he will dissect what social innovation is and why it’s so important to Generation Z. He’ll touch on the new-look 21st-century skills and what opportunities students have at CQUni, Australia’s only changemaker campus. Gain practical ideas to adopt in your school to foster our future change leaders.

We’ll also provide a snapshot of key changes to our pathway programs (SUN, STN and STEPS), share upcoming event dates with you and provide a tour of our Ooralea campus.

Plus let us know your coffee order when you register and we’ll look after you!
