Investment options

​​​​​​​​​​​Why are there costs?

  • The IMPACT Centre is part of Queensland’s Department of Education and Training (DET).
  • DET system leaders asked the centre to create a school-funded model so that each school can match its improvement agenda to our staff and student programs and invest.
  • We use a cost-recovery model, with salaries/costs fully-funded by investing schools.
