2019 PD Workshops for Educational Professionals

Insights Workshop

This workshop has been designed specifically for careers advisors and education professionals are familiar with the basics of QTAC and who are working with students intending to progress into tertiary study. It provides broad industry insights into the following areas:

  • current tertiary education industry trends, transparency and higher education drivers
  • analysis of year on year application data, statistics and patterns
  • updates on the ATAR implementation process and 2019 developments in real time
  • current QTAC schedules and practical tips for application and use
  • 2021 tertiary prerequisite discussion and practical examples
  • an introduction to university and VET widening participation opportunities.

These topics are presented in a practical context and with a comprehensive take-home pack to enable participants to guide students through tertiary study choices with confidence.

Attendees have the opportunity to meet, upskill and network with other career education professionals and QTAC industry experts in a relaxed and informative environment.
