Stage 6 Conference registrations for virtual workshops

May 18 @ 8:00 am - May 29 @ 3:00 pm

Free – $520

The ACHPER NSW Stage 6 Conference is the key professional development opportunity for Stage 6 PDHPE and CAFS professionals in New South Wales. The theme for this year’s conference is “Creating future focused learners”.

COVID-19 Update

Due to the recent advice and guidelines provided by the Government & NSW Health, ACHPER NSW are transferring all of our Professional Learning to an online format. All current registrations for the Stage 6 conference will be refunded with a new pricing system put in place with greater flexibility to cater for the new structure.

The Stage 6 Conference will be provided as virtual workshops throughout term 2. The workshops will be available before, during and after school and delegates can choose the individual workshops they want to register for.  We would encourage those still interested in attending the workshops offered as part of the Stage 6 conference program to register their interest by applying below (no payment will be processed) so the workshops with registrations can be developed for your ongoing professional development. This program will be developed and published here over the next few weeks.

Our 2020 program will still challenge your current practical applications, engage you with new ideas and develop your skills, while linking to appropriate NESA Standards.
