Independent Evaluation of Social Enterprise in Schools program results coming soon

The results from an independent evaluation conducted throughout the pilot phase of the Social Enterprise in Schools program will soon be released.  The evaluation specifically looked at adapting the program from a Scottish to an Australian cultural and curriculum context and looked at the effectiveness of the learning outcomes.

The Independent Evaluation has been critical in collecting baseline data throughout the pilot phase and will now be able help identify any areas for improvement, demonstrate how the program fits within the Australian context and  highlight any issues that may need to be addressed as we move forward.

A full report of the Evaluation will be available soon.

FILM SCREENING: Most Likely to Succeed


Throughout May 2016, ACRE  presented a number of screenings across the region of Most Likely to Succeed – a film that inspires audiences with a sense of purpose and possibility about the future of education. Most likely to Succeed documents the history of education and challenges the status quo by highlighting new approaches that use project-based and entrepreneurial learning.

The documentary was screened at a number of locations, was viewed by over 400 community members and generated some great conversation across the region.

The event was held at George Kerferd Hotel in Beechworth and marked the beginning of an exciting time for our region for rural communities.
