Bronze sponsor

K2AV started as 3 engineer friends, a van, $500 each, and a vision to improve teaching & learning through technology. Today K2AV stands as the largest provider to education in WA, in terms of clients. DoE consultants have leant on K2AV to design future classrooms, having completed virtually all new builds in the last 7 years along-with 3,000+ classrooms, and proudly helped 25,000+ students learn more effectively.

The business's founding principle was “a tool is only as good as the training the user is given.” K2AV became the first provider to offer unlimited training to all educators FREE of charge, now an industry norm.

Also K2AV’s team will always remain product agnostic. By never manufacturing or branding its own product/s, and again, the only provider that does so. This means the company must win work by investigating each school’s needs and having the skills to use any brand to design the best solution for the client’s best, not being motivated by higher margins on its own products.

It is our passion for the work that we have international CTS certified engineers in-house, no subcontracted installers, highest rated service team, guaranteed 24 hour on-site response, and the most cost effective solutions.

Kurongkurl Katitjin at Edith Cowan University

Bronze sponsor

Kurongkurl Katitjin, a Noongar phrase meaning ‘coming together to learn’, is Edith Cowan University’s Centre for Indigenous Education and Research.

The Centre’s mission is to transform lives and enrich society through meaningful community engagement, innovative student support, high-quality teaching, impactful research and cultural leadership.

ECU has a proud and strong foundation in Aboriginal education, with ECU's first Aboriginal graduate becoming the first qualified Aboriginal teacher in Western Australia, and the establishment of its first Aboriginal Teacher Education Program in 1975 at the Mount Lawley campus.

Kurongkurl Katitjin plays a vital role to build upon that strong foundation in assisting the University’s long-standing commitment in supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to realise their dreams and aspirations through furthering their education.

We believe in the transformative impact of education and understand that such a commitment changes the lives of not only the individual, but also the lives of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and communities across generations.

It gives us great pleasure to sponsor the 2021 WA Aboriginal and Islander Education Officer of the Year Award.
