What Works. The Work Program
What Works. The Work Program www.whatworks.edu.au has been operating in Australian schools for ten years now. The program is all about helping people in schools take systematic action to improve outcomes for Indigenous students.
We offer schools professional learning addressing particular issues and needs. Presentations may be part of this process, but it is just as likely to be the nitty-gritty of planning in a small group or generating ideas.
We provide a consultant and materials to facilitate the school-community partnership process with school personnel, parents and community members who, in time, can work together to support the education process for all Indigenous students.
