A range of general and specific outreach activity goes on at Curtin. Our different programs accommodate individuals or groups, as we engage on or off campus to offer an opportunity for potential university students to gain inspiration and information as they consider tertiary education.
The Curtin AHEAD team works with equity stakeholders, schools and community members to create higher education aspirations among under-represented groups and individuals.
Funded under the Australian Government’s Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program in 2013; Curtin AHEAD complements the University’s focus on raising higher education aspirations in schools.
Curtin AHEAD is committed to creating sustainable partnerships with groups that have not traditionally been outreach targets including Indigenous groups, disengage youth, humanitarian entrants, residents in corrective services and individuals in regional and remote communities.
STEM Outreach provides engaging and innovative programs that aim to connect schools and community to STEM and Curtin research. Representing the Faculty of Science and Engineering’s commitment to community engagement, Outreach delivers programs, workshops, camps, excursions, incursions and competitions, for students and teachers across metropolitan and regional Western Australia..
