The VicSRC Executive, working with funding from the Victorian Department of Education, commissioned two related evaluation studies (2017-2020): an evaluation of the Primary School Engagement (PSE) project, and an evaluation of the TtT: Ignite program. A total of five schools participated in these two evaluation studies (four primary and one secondary; three metropolitan, one outer metropolitan and one regional). The design and findings of the 2017-2018 Primary School Engagement project have been detailed elsewhere (see Mayes, Finneran & Black, 2018; Mayes, Finneran & Black, 2019).
This final report summarises the findings of the TtT: Ignite evaluation (2018-2020). This evaluation study took a multi-sited case study approach, investigating the situated accounts of students, teachers and school leaders of the impacts of the TtT: Ignite program in their particular school context. Research methods included interviews with teachers and principals, focus groups with students, and a survey sent to all teaching staff. At the two schools who participated in the TtT: Ignite evaluation, a total number of 4 school leaders and 3 teachers participated in formal interviews, 5 teachers completed a survey, 16 students participated as Student Advisors, and 45 students participated in focus groups.
