The department strongly values research and recognises the benefits that quality research can deliver to policy, teaching, learning, vocational education, training and skills development.
Research also helps us to understand and anticipate emerging issues and challenges and the future environment in which the department will operate. The department must continue to anticipate changes that could affect its work and prepare to meet these challenges.
Given the plethora of educational programs available to schools and training institutions, information on the programs that are working as intended would benefit all. By establishing a rigorous evidence base through research, educators can focus their resources on programs that work.
Research to be conducted within education related sites including Queensland state schools and Queensland government education offices is reviewed by Research Services. Researchers need to apply using a downloadable research application form and comply with the conditions described in the research guidelines .
