The Illume Learning Australian Inclusive Schooling Conference is an unmissable opportunity for those with an interest in and passion for inclusive education. The conference will showcase current research, innovative approaches and strategies to include and engage students with disabilities. 

The 2023 Australian Inclusive Schooling Conference aims to provide an exciting, and inspiring experience for our attendees. The event will bring together Australian and international leaders in the field of inclusive education to share informative and engaging presentations on the philosophy, research and practice of inclusive education. The conference has proven to be the standout professional development opportunity for those looking to deepen their understanding of inclusive education, be challenged to think bigger about the potential of students with disabilities, and be inspired to work towards even greater outcomes for all. 

After 2 years of virtual events, we are thrilled to be returning to an in-person Australian Inclusive Schooling Conference, to be held in Sydney in 2023. There's nothing quite like being in a room surrounded by peers who share the same enthusiastic commitment to ensuring all students have access to a high quality inclusive education. 

We understand that not everyone will be able to join us in Sydney. If this is you - don't worry, we've got you! We're pleased to present the Australian Inclusive Schooling Conference Virtual Spotlight - an opportunity to access 9 sessions live- streamed and available on-demand for a month following the event.

We can't wait for you to join us. 


16TH & 17TH March 2023

Waterview in Bicentennial Park, Sydney
+ Virtual Spotlight




You'll be inspired and motivated to do and be better, to raise your voice, to make changes, to seek to create the very best learning opportunities for all students.


You'll hear from leading experts from across Australia and the world who will share the latest research, theory, and most importantly, practice relating to inclusive education. 


You'll be challenged to question what you think you know, to remain humble and curious, to be open to trying new things, and to learning lessons from those with lived experience.
