Providing support for schools with high quality resourcing

Curriculum

Pedagogy

Assessment

Why do we need Catalyst?

Catalyst aligns our focus as a system to evidence-based pedagogy, curriculum, and assessment. This means teachers will be more supported in the continuous improvement of their teaching practice – utilising the latest data, evidence and experts. This includes access to high quality curriculum resources to integrate into lesson planning, which are continually evolved based on teacher feedback.

Catalyst will enable us to achieve our Bold Goals of

1

Every student is a competent reader

Supporting every student with high quality literacy programs to enable them to reach their learning potential

2

High Impact Teaching Practice is visible in every classroom

Driving student outcomes through highly impactful lessons combining evidence-based teaching practice and learning materials.
