25 March 2021

The 2021 AEDC Victoria Forum is on Thursday 25 March 2021 from 2.30pm AEDT to 5.00pm AEDT.

This virtual event will focus on the value of data provided by the Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) for teachers, schools, and their communities; how policy makers use longitudinal data to create change and the influence of academics and local areas who have responded to the results over time.

This event will launch the fifth cycle of the AEDC data collection in Victoria, which is taking place from 3 May – 30 July 2021

A recording will be available to attendees until the 25th of May 2021.
