posted on 2009-05-17, 00:00 authored by Ros BlackRos Black
This report delivers the findings of a research project carried out from 2008 to 2009 to explore the trends in corporate and philanthropic involvement in school education in Victoria, Australia and internationally that are supporting improved outcomes for students.

This included a search of the local and international literature and the collection of qualitative data through forums with the corporate and philanthropic sectors, school leaders, policy-makers and leading agencies as well as interviews with representatives of leading corporate and philanthropic sector organisations.

The research was guided by questions including:

1. What are the trends in corporate and philanthropic involvement in government school education, in Victoria, Australia and internationally, that support improved outcomes for students, including those students who are underperforming in literacy and numeracy, at risk of leaving school early, or who are less likely to enter university or to succeed in further or vocational education?

2. What is the scope of existing practice in Victoria?

3. What are some good examples of next practice at the system, regional and school level in Victoria, Australia and internationally?
