The College would like to extend its appreciation to our conference partners St John WA and Charles Darwin University, and our event sponsors Edith Cowan University and NobleOak.

St John WA provides emergency ambulance and transport services in metropolitan Perth and fifteen regional centres. Volunteer teams provide these services in other regional areas allowing St John WA to meet the diverse needs of the communities we serve, spread over 2.5 million square kilometres. This is the largest geographical area serviced by a single ambulance operator in the world. Their network of volunteers also provides first aid training, community transport, medical aid and community education at shopping centres, events, schools, and day care centres.
Their paid workforce includes doctors, nurses, dentists, paramedics, patient transport officers, first aid trainers, communication officers and administration staff, who all play a vital role supporting the organisation in the coordination of a sophisticated, centralised supply chain, and providing opportunities for training and development. St John WA also runs the State Operations Centre, which fields Triple Zero calls.
On a day-to-day basis their staff and volunteers make a difference to the lives of countless people. They pride themselves on their relationship with the community and understand how important it is to feel we each have the care and support of our neighbours in times of need. It’s a unique insight that comes from their foundation as an organisation of volunteers who came together 130 years ago to do just that. St John WA continues to share this affinity with the community they serve, knowing accidents, injuries and emergencies can happen at any time. A community that is capable, competent and equipped to provide vital first aid and support in an emergency is critical.
We are a new world university.
Like our namesake Charles Darwin, we think differently. We innovate, embrace change, and challenge conventions and look for better ways.
We’re not about tradition or legacy, privilege or exclusivity. We care about people as individuals, as well as wider society.
We’re about what you can give to the world, rather than what you take.
We cannot build a new world without diversity of thought; therefore, we bring those with unique perspectives together in an inclusive and supportive learning environment to connect, discover and grow.
This is the CDU difference.
Established in 1991, Edith Cowan University (ECU) has rapidly developed into a modern university that focuses on both research excellence and quality teaching. ECU has taken the opportunity to reshape the way higher education is delivered in our inspiring campus environment and through engaged online delivery modes. It’s an approach that has been rewarded with a five-star rating for teaching quality over the past fourteen years in the Good Universities Guide 2021.
