It's time to create an expert teaching team for the 21st century!

Our specialist online teachers log in to schools across Queensland and the world to address one of the most vexing issues in education – teacher supply and capacity.

Augment your on-site staff with our online staff. Some of your team walk through the gate, while others beam in to work directly with your students and collaborate with your on-site staff.

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

Cost-recovery model

  • The IMPACT Centre operates on a user-pays, cost-recovery model.
  • Your investment pays for staff salaries 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.

Investment methods—cash or FTE (Queensland schools)

  • Your school can invest cash budgets, the most popular being Investing for Success (I4S), Advancing STEM in primary schools or other internal budget allocations. We invoice your school during the program.
  • Alternatively, school leaders 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 in 2021.
  • You can also offer parents or community organisations the opportunity to pay for or subsidise the programs. This may depend on your school context.

What are the costs?

  • The costs outlined below apply to all projects in the critical thinking, STEM, literacy and numeracy series.
  • These projects run for 12 weeks and involve 1 x 60-70 minute web conference lesson per week, plus "anytime" access to online reinforcement/extension activities.

Note: 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.
