This subject involves travel to three nations to enable students to enable students to explore and investigate education systems outside Australia. There are two main components involved in the international visits:
1. School/institution- involving visits to a range of schools and other educational providers, in order to experience first-hand the structures of provision in the host countries. Students will be given a tour of the school/provider and will be briefed by a senior member of staff on the mission and clientele of the school/provider and on emerging policy issues as they affect that institution. There will be opportunities to ask questions and for discussion.
2. Policy- involving a session with a university and/or policy specialist with experience and expertise in post-compulsory education and training policy. Students will be provided with a seminar (or multiple seminars) offering a critical perspective on the main challenges facing policy makers in that country.
