Engagement Framework Toolkit

Over the last two decades a wealth of knowledge and experience has been built internationally in the widening participation arena. However, there remains no definitive and contextualised evidence of best practice.

This Engagement Framework Toolkit encompasses a progression map from kindergarten to tertiary education, documenting the key transition points and enablers for a person progressing through education, with the interventions and key messages required to support advancement.

Progression maps are available by Stage:

  • Early Stage 1 to Stage 3 – Kindergarten to Year 6
  • Stage 4 to Stage 6 – Year 7 to Year 12
  • Tertiary progression / lifelong learning / mature age

And by Aspect:

  • Academic preparedness
  • Awareness, confidence and motivation
  • School and community capacity
  • Engaging parents and carers
  • Pathways and transitions
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander people

Bridges to Higher Education has adopted an evidence-based and research-informed approach, acknowledging international models of practice to provide key information as to the engagements required at each developmental stage to facilitate progression through the educational journey.
