Tuesday 19 September 2017

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Dale Murray, CEO, Youth+

Searching for rights – stories from the front line of marginalisation of young people from education

The Child Protection Practitioners Association of Queensland (CPPAQ) aims to improve interdisciplinary professional collaboration in the child protection system in Queensland. This event is named in honour of Ms Leneen Forde AO who led the 1999 Inquiry into Abuse of Children in Queensland Institutions.

The 2017 public address will be chaired by Michael Hogan, Director-General, Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services.

The keynote address will be delivered by Dale Murray, Director, Edmund Rice Education Australia Youth+ Institute (Youth+).

Dale Murray has worked in the area of flexible education provision for over 30 years, firstly as a teacher in the Centre Education Program (the first Flexible Learning Centre in Queensland) then as the Principal, Flexible Learning Centre Network, and now in his current role as Director, EREA Youth+. Youth+ provides socially inclusive educational environments for disenfranchised young people in schools located around the nation. They work with community, NGOs, Catholic Education Offices, and state and federal governments to re-engage young people who for complex social reasons are unable to maintain a connection with mainstream education services.
