Hosted by the Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth (ARACY) and The Smith Family, and supported by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training, the Parent Engagement Conference will bring research, policy and practice together to advance discussion about the importance of parent engagement to maximise every child’s learning potential. A key focus will be on ways to increase the effectiveness of parent engagement strategies through relationships, and through capacity building. The intended outcome of the Conference is to build and strengthen a parent engagement community of practice in Australia.
