Success for students and staff

Schools are achieving significant success through their involvement in IMPACT Centre programs and networks.

  • The Department of Education’s Strategy and Performance Branch and Griffith University researchers have verified measurable improvement in student results and attitudes.
  • This includes improved student achievement in NAPLAN reading, writing and numeracy standardised testing. Increased relative gains have led to students reaching or maintaining their positon in the Upper 2 Bands.
  • Action research projects within schools are demonstrating increased student engagement and achievement, and positive changes to teacher and leader capability.

Accessible model

  • Our online delivery model ensures that your school community can access our programs and networks regardless of location.
  • Our highly trained team consists of specialist teachers and network leaders who work directly with your students and staff though our web conferencing platform and 24/7 learning environment.

Note: We also offer face-to-face workshops, education tours and experiential learning opportunities.


When compared with national and international online learning initiatives for school-aged students, this is one of the most innovative, well-conceptualised initiatives in the world.

School of Education and Professional Studies, 2016

The IMPACT Centre has developed a pedagogical approach that takes training in critical thinking for school students to a new level of rigour.
Students learn to explicitly articulate complex concepts associated with deductive and inductive forms of reasoning at a surprisingly young age and to transfer those skills across the curriculum.
