Workshop D. Dismantling barriers to participating in education, training and employment

Morrison’s Island Campus CCFET


If you build it, will they will come? For many, other barriers, from childcare to transport to mental and physical health challenges inhibit meaningful engagement in education and training systems. While digital delivery has helped to expand access, it also limits the types of face-to-face supports that may be the most beneficial for some. This workshop will explore how to improve on-ramps and pathways for people who want to re-engage in education and training, but may face barriers in doing so. Amongst others, the specific case of refugees and recently arrived migrants will be considered.
