Engagement in Education

The factors that support children and young people's engagement in education and school are the theme of a major project undertaken by the Commissioner.

Students from 98 primary and secondary schools around the state participated in the consultation, which comprised a survey and workshops. 

The participating schools were randomly selected from metropolitan and non-metropolitan schools across the government, Catholic and independent education sectors.

Information from the consultations will be published by the Commissioner in early 2018 to increase understanding about what influences children and young people’s participation in education, and to inform further work in the Engagement in Education project.

Advisory Committees

The Commissioner's 2016 Advisory Committees have provided important support to the School and Learning Consultation and helped other children and young people in their schools have a say about the factors that influence their education.
