School Marketing Aforia 2010 Adelaide

The School Marketers Aforia Conference for 2010 was held in Adelaide Australia. An imporant issue facing all schools is attracting and retaining staff. Many teachers are due for retirement so school marketing also includes teachers as target market.

The Aforia also discussed the role of Early Learning centres for schools.
