Developed by the Prince’s Trust Australia, Achieve Fest is a free, two-day online immersion designed to explore identity, build networks, and develop the skills needed to thrive now and into the future. Achieve Fest is open to young people aged 12 to 18, educators, and parents/guardians across Australia.
Achieve Fest is designed to be an engaging, personalised and interactive experience for all participants. The event has been intentionally curated to include a blend of online and offline activities, synchronous and asynchronous learning, as well as ‘passive’ and ‘active’ workshops.
If you’re an educator keen on participating in Achieve Fest in the classroom, it’s easy to set up. Here’s what the Prince’s Trust recommends:
- Use one computer to log into Achieve Fest and connect it to a projector or smartboard so that all students can see and hear the event.
- We recommend that each student has access to a computer, tablet or smartphone, as some of the workshops are personalised for each participant. If this is not possible, one device between 3 to 5 students is fine.
- Need to factor in a recess break? See our program for how we have set up the timing for each day.
