WERC researchers hard at work

Stefan Schutt from the University’s Work-based Education Research Centre (WERC) has been selected to join a national non-profit collaboration of more than 850 organisations and individuals that work to create better futures for Australia's children and young people.

The Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth (ARACY) focuses on the role of information and communication technologies in promoting positive mental health among marginalised young people aged 12 to 25.

Meanwhile WERC Director, Shelley Gillis, has been invited by the Ministerial Council on Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs to join the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) expert advisory group. The NAPLAN assesses more than one million Australian students in years 3, 5, 7 and 9, using common tests in reading, writing, language conventions and numeracy.
