Partnership for Education

The Department of Education and Children’s Services (DECS) in South Australia wants to consult with the African community leaders, on educating the new arrivals.

The aim is to identify processes through which African community leaders, parents, and caregivers can have a greater participation and engagement in the system to ensure positive educational outcomes for African learners.

Emphasis is placed on partnership in education. This is a genuine attempt to map out effective strategies for community involvement in the educational process.

Indeed, DECS is actively supporting refugees and humanitarian migrants from African countries in its schools.

The Department is currently promoting a number of education and training initiatives in the new and emerging African communities in South Australia.
