The Solutions Network brings together VATE members who work with struggling and disengaged students.  With the examination period looming, we share ‘solutions’ to these challenges with colleagues who are searching for support and answers. Here’s a chance to share your approach, or to hear about the way other people are tackling the problems associated with exam preparation.


Chris has written on Education issues in The Age and published articles in Idiom and English in Australia. He has also written five young adult novels, and short stories. He is also the facilitator of VATE’s Solutions Network which aims to support teachers in disadvantaged schools to find good solutions to the problems of engagement and making a mandated curriculum work for all students.
