The Faculty of Education is committed to community engagement and to forming strong education partnerships within our community. We also run a variety of annual activities reflecting this commitment.
The Youth Leadership Forum (YLF) brings together more than a hundred local high school students, for a full day of interactive leadership workshops run by inspiring young leaders.
Held annually in April, the program helps school leaders understand more about leadership, encouraging them to build their leadership skills.
The USQ Isolated Children’s Project gives third and fourth year pre-service teachers the opportunity of a lifetime, to live with an isolated family and teach their children for three weeks.
Volunteering students are matched with a family in a rural or remote part of Queensland and enjoy a unique teaching experience, along with the chance to build new friendships and get a taste of life in the outback.
The project runs in January/February each year and is funded by the Faculty of Education, in partnership with the Isolated Children’s Parents’ Association and various sponsors.
