The problem we’re trying to solve is that Australia’s education system is segmented, unfair and underperforming. Young people from disadvantaged backgrounds are the worst off.
There is wide consensus that broader and deeper recognition of learning is a key lever for change. What and how we recognise learning is important because it determines post school pathways to further learning and work.
There is a unique opportunity to build a more equitable education system as broader ways to recognise learning continue to grow. To achieve this a coordinated effort from people and organisations at all levels of the system is required, alongside a sharp focus on equity.
Young people have historically been excluded from decisions that impact their learning. Learning Creates is committed to embedding young people’s voice and agency across all levels of our work.
We partner with Communities across Australia who are working to create change for young people within the current education system.
