Cambridge International Education

CAMBRIDGE INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION AT ERINDALE COLLEGE 2015

Over the last 6 to 8 months our college community has been preparing for the rigorous application and approval process for Cambridge International Education (CIE). Our approval visit occurred early this term and the feedback from our 'inspector' was that our presentation was the best he had seen and we have now been approved as a CIE School, joining more than 10,000 Cambridge schools in over 160 countries worldwide. In fact, Erindale College is the first public education college in Australia and we become one of only 10 CIE schools in our country. This initiative has been approved by our College Board and acknowledged by our School Network Leader on behalf of the Education and Training Directorate.

Our key purpose in taking this step has been to introduce the students of the Tuggeranong Valley and Canberra more broadly to the challenges they face both 'doing school' and graduating into further study or employment pathways in a global context.

The rate of change in our world is unprecedented. We live in a world where people are connected instantly; where business can be conducted from anywhere using hand-held technology; where travel to once distant lands is relatively cheap and easily available; and where employment can lead a young person anywhere. At Erindale College we believe we MUST engage in international education where our students can learn with and about; connect to; be assessed against, students from those other 160 countries that have schools in the CIE family.

We will be holding information sessions for families who might be interested in participating in the Cambridge International Education experience in the early part of 2015.

For more detailed information go to http://www.cie.org.uk to understand what is on offer from mid-2015; or simply Google Cambridge International Education.

  Zoe Winters

The Youth Coalition of the ACT and the ACT Minister for Children and Young People, Mick Gentleman, announced the 2014 Young Canberra Citizen of the Year Awards and YOGIE Awards on Friday 5th December in Civic Square.

The annual Young Canberra Citizen of the Year Awards and YOGIE Awards (YOGIES) have been combined to shine a brighter light on young people and those who provide services to young people.

The Youth Coalition is really excited to be working in partnership with the Minister and the great team from the Community Services Directorate to bring a combined Young Canberra Citizen of the Year and YOGIES Awards Ceremony.

You might know the YOGIES is an annual end of year celebration, and the awards celebrate and recognise the innovative and outstanding workers, programs, services and partnerships that highlight the integral role the youth sector plays in the Canberra community.

These awards shine a light on inspirational groups and individual young people who are driving positive change and shaping our community, not only for the future but here and now.

Zoe Winters, Manager of the Erindale College Mindyigari Centre, was nominated for the Outstanding Contribution to Young People Award, and today she was announced the winner.

Above she is pictured receiving her award from Minister Mick Gentleman.

Unfortunately for us, Zoe is leaving to pursue her dreams to live and work in London. However, she receives a fabulous send-off from all her friends in the Erindale College and wider Canberra community.
