A state government department of education

An evaluation undertaken in association with ACIL Allen Consulting. Our role was to undertake consultations and longitudinal case studies to evaluate the impact of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Action plan across all Australian States and Territories. The methodology included 32 case studies in schools each year over 2012-2014 to provide the opportunity to elaborate in detail on 'what works' in 'what contexts' as well as identifying barriers and other issues which may impact on the efficacy of the Action Plan.

Review of state government schools

A state government department of education

We are members of the panel established by the government to undertake reviews of government schools in the state. In undertaking these reviews we conduct an in-depth examination of a school's performance by analysing the school's self-evaluation and other relevant data, and, where required, conduct intensive field work in the school, liaising with regional and central Department staff as required.

Evaluation of the More Support for Students with Disabilities (MSSD) Initiative (2012-2015)

Commonwealth Department of Education

The Australian Government provided $300 million, over three years, of additional funding to government and non-government education authorities under the More Support for Students with Disabilities initiative. Under a National Partnership Agreement, education authorities had selected activities that would best support students, teachers and schools in their jurisdiction. PhillipsKPA was commissioned to evaluate the MSSD initiative from the implementation stage in 2012 to the final phase of reporting in 2015. The evaluation included consultations with all eight government education authorities and 16 non-government education authorities in every state and territory, mapping of outputs from each jurisdiction, extensive data gathering through fieldwork, 15 annual information seminars in each capital city and selected regional areas, and more than 40 case study examples of good practice. The evaluation concluded with a national launch of the final report in June 2015 in Canberra.
