Review of the Asia Education Foundation - your say

Posted by Fiona Laing, ETAQ President on 30 September 2014

The federal government has commissioned KPMG to investigate the usefulness/value of the Asia Education Foundation. Garry Collins is asking for your urgent input as he has a conference on October 9 to pass your thoughts on. Please blog your thoughts or email Garry.

Background
1 Can you briefly describe your involvement/interaction with the AEF?

Justification/problem
2 Why do you think the AEF and its activities are needed?

3 Why is the AEF the best way to address the identified need?

4 What do you view as government’s role in addressing this need?

5 Could the AEF’s activities be provided by any other government department or agency (state or federal), non-Government organisation or private company?

Effectiveness
6 How effective do you think the AEF has been in (please provide qualitative responses and rate your responses, with one being ‘strongly disagree’ and five being ‘strongly agree’):
• aligning key stakeholders to the Asia agenda to undertake initiatives to support Asia relevant curriculum and capabilities in schools
• improving school leader engagement and competence in leading schools to deliver Asia related content
• improving teacher competency in delivering Asia learning in schools
• improving student engagement with Asia learning in schools
• responding to changing policy environment and external needs?

7 In what other ways has the AEF been effective?

8 Have there been any unintended benefits or costs associated with the AEF? If so, what are these?

9 What could you improve about the program design or delivery to achieve a greater impact?

Future focus
10 Would the objectives/outcomes of the AEF continue to be met if Australian government funding ceased? What would be the impact of ceasing the funding?

11 Would there be any risks to the Government, Department or other stakeholders if recurrent funding to the AEF were ceased? How would these be managed?

12 What should the future focus of the AEF be?

13 Is there anything else you want to add about the AEF in general?

This is the first time I have been to an ETAQ conference and it was really sensational to get so much at all of the sessions.

ETAQ conferences always have sessions that make me excited to be a teacher.

I know that ETAQ conferences in the past have never disappointed - valuable, relevant, practical, inspiring so I came again.
