Research & Evaluation

Our approach to research and evaluation is also a partnership approach.

When scoping a new program, our team begins with analysing our client’s brief, clarifying the purpose and parameters of the research or evaluation and determining exactly what our client needs to know and learn in order to achieve their purposes. 

We clarify how the research or evaluation findings will be used and by whom and clarify other audiences for the final report.

Our clients are invited to determine the level of involvement they prefer and together we identify how best to enable this to occur.  If capacity building of the commissioning team is also a goal, we discuss roles, implications and responsibilities. 

In 2017, we conducted an international literature review of the Victorian Department of Education. The following two short research extracts have been prepared for use in schools:
