Indonesian teachers, principals and professional educators will now have a virtual forum to share ideas, experience and expertise on the latest policies and programs in education.
Ambassador Grigson said access to quality education is integral to the prosperity of both countries and is one of the most important investments a country can make in its people and its future.
“Australians and Indonesians share a passion for education and are both seeking new models of teaching and the latest concepts to improve the way children learn,” Mr Grigson said.
“We can learn a lot from each other, as I’ve found through the Ambassador’s Principals Lecture Series which enable principals and teachers to learn more about new practices and explore issues of gender, disability and creating a positive school culture,” he said.
The Australian and Indonesian Governments are working together to improve education quality for Indonesian children at schools and madrasah through the INOVASI program.
