Better Boarding Webinar #4
ABSTUDY – Addressing Key Themes and Issues

ABSTUDY workshops have been held throughout Australia to help boarding schools and residences develop a better understanding of ABSTUDY systems, implement changes introduced through the 2018 budget measures and develop the knowledge and skill necessary to receive full ABSTUDY entitlements.

At these workshops boarding school staff asked many questions of the Department of Social Services and Department of Human Services that couldn’t be answered at the time. These departments have taken time to address the key themes and issues raised in the workshops. These issues you raised will be considered in future policy reviews of these arrangements.

Hear from the Department of Social Services and the Department of Human Services as they address your unanswered ABSTUDY questions.

If you attended the Workshops this webinar will help complete your ABSTUDY journey.

If you missed the Workshops, but want to know more about ABSTUDY this webinar is a good place to start your journey.

Better Boarding Webinar #3

Indigenous students from northern Queensland and the Northern Territory find their way into boarding schools and residences throughout Australia with the support of specialised transition services.

So what do transition services do? Who do they help? What do they do well? And how can they assist you?

Following the What’s Working in Boarding workshop held at the 2019 Indigenous Education & Boarding Symposium in Brisbane there was a lot of interest from boarding schools about transition services and how they can connect up with them to enrol and support Indigenous boarding students. Western Australian delegates openly expressed a desire for a WA transition service.

Hear Richard Stewart, State Program Manager of the Transition Support Services and Andrew Lloyd, Senior Transition Manager – South with the Transition Support Unit discuss the function of their respective services, the benefits they bring and the challenges they face, and how they assist boarding schools.
