Grant themes for 2019

Consistent with the learning system focus on building and strengthening the evidence base for the sector, the 2019 Learning System Grants will focus on the OPEN Journey to Better Outcomes as described on the OPEN portal:

  1. Identify: What is the issue and how have you identified it?
  2. Design: How to plan to achieve your identified outcomes?
  3. Implement: What steps will you take to embed evidence-informed practice approaches?
  4. Evaluate: How will you know if you are making a difference?

Full details of each theme can be found in the Call for Applications document which you can download below. Applications will need to align with one or more of these themes.
