More than a conference proceedings, this e-collection is framed by prefatory comments on the critical importance of educational attainment and aspiration by the Governor of Tasmania, the Tasmanian Minister for Education and Training, and the Patron of the Peter Underwood Centre for Educational Attainment. Its purpose is introduced by the University of Tasmania’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Students and Education) and Pro Vice-Chancellor (Students). The balance of the work comprises papers originally presented at the inaugural Education Transforms Symposium held in Hobart, Tasmania, over 14–16 July 2015. The work also captures reflections by several session chairs, panellists, and participants—all of whom share their views about how the symposium transformed their own thinking. These varied contributions are augmented by short commentaries from the coordinators of Children’s University Tasmania and Bigger Things, two of the Centre’s key aspiration programs. A final section by the Centre’s Interim Director both closes the work and opens up a space for further and ongoing conversations about educational attainment and lifelong aspirations to learn.
