23-Apr-20The Australian Council of Educational Research (ACER) and the Social Research Centre (SRC) will be conducting telephone interviews with 800 current and former government senior secondary school students on behalf of the Department for Education from 27 April and 29 May 2020.
The interviews are part of The Earning and Learning Pathways Project, which will capture the student voice behind young people’s learning pathway choices, specifically why:
SRC will contact parents first to gain permission to speak to their children, before then contacting the student direct. It is being run independently, so no action is required from schools.
The questionnaire builds upon previous research and other Australian school-leaver surveys, and has been developed in collaboration with the LID SACE achievement officers and System Performance.
As part of the communications strategy a website statement has been developed to provide information to students, parents, principals and the public, found here.
General public inquiries can be directed within Data, Reporting and Analytics on 8226 0960, alternatively, inquiries can be emailed to: email@example.com.
