​​​Investing in an IMPACT Centre program means that our specialist online teachers become part of your school's teaching team.

​You are creating an expert teaching team for the 21st century—where specialist online teachers supplement your on-site team!




John, Katie and Andrew are examples of the specialist online teachers available to your school

Fee-for-service model

  • The IMPACT Centre operates on a fee-for-service, cost-recovery model.
  • Your investment pays for the salaries of our specialist teachers and operational costs.
  • Department of Education leaders asked us to create this school-funded model so that each school can match its improvement agenda to our initiatives and invest accordingly.

Cash budgets or full-time equivalent option

The pricing below applies to Queensland state schools. Pricing for schools from outside the Queensland state school sector is negotiated and will be higher than the costs outlined below.

  • Your school can invest cash budgets, the most popular being Investing for Success (I4S), or school budget allocations. We invoice your school during the program and school-purchase the teacher.
  • Alternatively, your school can invest a small fraction of their school's full-time equivalent (FTE) staffing allocation. Simply transfer the FTE to the IMPACT Centre via School Budgeting Solution (SBS) after Day 8 enrolments are finalised or at other times during the year.
  • Schools can also offer parents or community organisations the opportunity to pay for or subsidise the programs. This may depend on your school context.

Subjects—Technologies
