The purpose of the Emerging Priorities Program (EPP) is to fund projects that assist school communities to respond to emerging priorities in school education, including to meet the ongoing challenges of COVID-19.
On this page:
The intended outcomes for the EPP are:
- improved educational outcomes for school students
- improved engagement of school students and their families with school education
- improved wellbeing of school leaders, teachers, and school students.
The continuing impacts of COVID-19 on schools and students have been immensely challenging. Recognising these impacts, the EPP Open Competitive Grant Opportunity was conducted in early 2022 to fund on-the-ground support for schools.
The Department of Education received very strong interest in the Grant Opportunity and successful applications were of a very high standard. Following the conclusion of the Grant Opportunity, 34 providers were selected to deliver projects under the EPP.
