This project explored recommendations to both education policy planners as well as key university education faculties on how mature age graduates can be recruited back to the teaching field.
A network of school representatives and related associates was established in participating schools. Rosalind Jones of The Hamilton Alexandra College, the Fellowship recipient also worked with staff at RMIT Hamilton
An important aspect of this project included recommendations towards the possibility of establishing a Graduate Diploma in Education (Secondary) program at RMIT Hamilton as well as extending accommodation options in the region, including that for student teachers. Recommendations were made including to recast the course and open it up to a wider range of teaching methodologies, to lobby local politicians with regard to HECS, that an advertising process should be undertaken more actively and by RMIT Hamilton at an earlier point in time and that principals need to be contacted to discuss student teacher placements and scholarships.
