Carers: Share your insights about children’s engagement in education



The Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare is working on a project to improve educational outcomes for children and young people in care. We are keen to hear from carers about your child or children’s engagement in education and what helps them stay connected to school.


What do we want to know?


  • What has been helpful for keeping kids engaged in education?
  • What are the challenges in keeping them engaged?
  • What support (information, resources, other support) would help your children stay engaged in education?


The insights you provide will help us develop some useful resources to help you support your children in staying engaged in school.

We welcome feedback by any means – phone call, video chat, email or group discussions/forums.

If you would like to share your insights, or for more information, please contact Sarah Ryan: or 03 9094 3548
