A new research initiative - Filling the Data Gap: International Engagement in the School Sector is attempting to provide a comprehensive picture of the depth and breadth of international engagement in secondary schools nationally.Registrations are now open to all secondary schools who have active sister school relationships, host inbound students and visitors or facilitate overseas experiences for Australian students.
Participation is open to both CRICOS registered and non-CRICOS registered schools and we are encouraging schools across all systems and jurisdictions nationally to participate in this exciting and important research for the sector.
