Engaged Classrooms: Supporting all students to achieve

The Australian Government will invest $3.5 million to develop evidence-based guidance and tools for effectively managing classrooms and creating safe and supportive environments focused on learning. These learning resources will support:

  • primary and secondary teachers to develop and implement effective routines and approaches that maximise student engagement in their own classrooms
  • school leaders and teaching teams to develop and implement whole-school positive behaviour management systems
  • parents and students to understand the importance of effectively managed classroom environments focused on learning, and how they can best contribute.

Resources will include:

  • best practice exemplars that teachers can learn from and adapt for their own classrooms
  • best practice whole-school systems and policies that school leaders can learn from and adapt for their own schools
  • video and written case studies of best practice materials, systems and policies in use
  • podcasts involving experts and experienced guests

Specialised resources will also be developed for supporting certain groups of students including, but not limited to: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students; students experiencing disability; neuro-diverse students; students experiencing trauma.
