The CREFI - Partnerships and Engagement, led by Associate Professor Mary Dixon, supports CREFI members together with staff in the School of Education to participate in a range of educational projects and community partnerships.

CREFI - Partnerships and Engagement has taken carriage of major contract research, industry grants and evaluation projects on behalf of the state and federal governments and affiliated agencies. It has developed and implemented and researched significant professional learning programs both in the government and non-government sectors. The activities of 'Partnerships and Engagement' reflect CREFI's commitment to engaging with the larger community in order to enhance the educational opportunities of young people in schools and early childhood settings, as well as people in other educational contexts.
