TRB Annual Conference – 8 September 2017

"Capable Professional Teachers"

We are pleased to announce our upcoming conference is fully booked.

If you have registered for the conference but can no longer attend, please click here to cancel your booking so that someone else can take your place.

The year’s conference has a combined focus on competent, professional teachers and children’s well-being. Our two keynote speakers have many years of experience working with and supporting children and young people. Cathy Taylor, Chief Executive of the new Department for Child Protection has broad experience working with communities and young people in Queensland, and is now responsible for overseeing some of the recommendations made in the Nyland Royal Commission report. Appointed last September, Ms Taylor will provide insights into the department and on how we can ensure all children have access to safe, well supported learning environments.

Helen Connolly was appointed as South Australia’s first Commissioner for Children and Young People in March 2017 and has pledged to raise children and young people’s issues higher on the public agenda to ensure they are valued members of our community. Formerly an Executive Director at Australian Red Cross, Ms Connolly holds degrees in Social Sciences and Economics and has been the Chairperson on the South Australian Council of Social Service since 2010.

Other speakers include Associate Professor Debra Panizzon who will be sharing information on our teacher induction and mentoring project as well as Dr Peter Lind and Mia Toscano from the Department for Communities and Social Inclusion.

Join us at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Hindmarsh Square on Friday 8 September. Entry is free and there are opportunities available to fund TRT release for teachers.
