Dusseldorp Forum has partnered with Big Picture Education Australia to develop a parallel pathway to university for Big Picture students.
Big Picture Education is a not-for-profit network of educators implementing an innovative design for schools. Adapted from a successful US model, Big Picture was first introduced to Australia in 2006, and since that time, 41 schools have adapted their learning design reaching over 4,500 students.
Big Picture’s rigorous and highly personalised approach to education combines academic work with real-world learning. It focuses on educating ‘one student at a time’ and inverts the traditional education design by placing the student, their passions and their interests, at the centre of the learning process.
Students’ development and their abilities are measured by the quality of their work recorded in student portfolios. The portfolios are the official record of student learning and achievement.
In 2015, Dusseldorp Forum provided $50,000 over two years to develop MOU’s with participating Australian universities and establish agreed principles, processes, standards and evidence to guide the use of portfolio entry to university.
In 2017 the first five students from Big Picture entered university studying Law, Biomedical Science, Asian Studies, Teaching and Physiotherapy via the Big Picture Graduation Portfolio.
By generating and sustaining innovative, individualised schools that operate in the real world and involve families and local communities, we are making changes to education and to the lives of young people.
Showcases projects undertaken by young skills teams working with local communities in Zimbabwe, East Timor, Kenya and Cape York and gives a feel for the realities on the ground for organisations and individuals wishing to do something similar.
The National Youth Committment was about guaranteeing that all young people have access to Year 12 or its equivalent or a job with training. Six partnerships were established between 1999 and 2001 to explore the capacity of local communities to deliver a Youth Commitment.

Many local newspapers had online personals in the mid 1990s but were bought out by these big dating sites. From some of the comments it really shows how desperate dating sites are for money that they even advertise in comment sections. You have a much better chance going to local events and you will probably spend less than what you would spend on an online dating site. Other apps have indicated that they might actually move closer to Facebook. For example, Bumble, founded by a former Tinder executive, said they had already reached out to Facebook regarding how to collaborate. And, “One thing everyone seems to agree on is that Facebook’s effectively endorsing online dating will be a huge legitimization event for the industry,” says Jefferies Internet analyst Brent Thill. According to Amanda Bradford, chief executive of The League, an elite dating app, “Facebook is validating that dating is a high-tech industry with really interesting and hard problems to solve. Still, Facebook could face some obstacles in building enough separation between the dating service and the legacy social network; some users might not like having both activities live on one app. After giving him some time to cope with his cat passing away, he made plans to see her again and she was thrilled. He canceled the date last minute again because he said his grandma had died. Although this seemed too tragic to be true, she gave him the benefit of the doubt that he was telling the truth. Additionally, if someone is giving you a checklist right away of all of the things they want in a future partner, this may be a red flag for some controlling behaviors. It’s one thing if they express their non-negotiables but it’s another thing entirely if they are listing required traits. […]
