DETi, the international arm of the Queensland Department of Education and Training, promotes opportunities for Queensland teachers and students to be exposed to the short and long term benefits of globalisation. The Harvard Club of Australia (HCA) has several fellowships and scholarships designed to give outstanding Australians an opportunity to further their education at Harvard. There are many examples of how the Global perspective offered by Harvard has impacted attendees and those to whom they pass on their learnings.

The Public Education Foundation’s Harvard Club of Australia Education Scholarship enables, every year, two Principals of government primary and secondary schools to undertake a short professional program at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. 

DETi invites you to a breakfast forum for a chance to network with HCA members and listen to Queensland Principals Harvard alumni share their professional learnings, challenges and experiences that contribute to the globalisation of our students. Coinciding with National Literacy and Numeracy week, hear about some of the impact on literacy levels through the connections made at Harvard and the introduction of the Collins Writing project.
