The latest from CESE
Supporting students' learning publications
We recently published two publications on advocacy and supporting students' learning:
  • Insights from students, parents and teachers Learning Curve
  • Resources for schools, teachers and parents.
To read the publications, visit the CESE website.
The Learning Curve draws on perspectives from the 2016 Tell Them From Me student, parent and teacher surveys. It explores the provision of advocacy and support for learning and how this varies for different groups of students and at different stages of school.
The resources for schools publication uses evidence-based practices, and local examples from NSW public schools, to identify a set of strategies for supporting students’ learning. It also includes two in-depth case studies from Whalan Public School and Sir Joseph Banks High School. These case studies highlight the programs and initiatives that have helped to create a positive and highly supportive school environment at both schools.
We would like to thank the staff at Whalan Public School and Sir Joseph Banks High Schools for their valuable contribution and insights.
The latest evaluations
We have recently published evaluation reports for two major NSW Department of Education reforms:
LSLD aims to give NSW government schools more authority to make local decisions about how best to meet the needs of their students. LSLD focuses on five interrelated areas:
  • making decisions
  • managing resources
  • staffing schools
  • working locally
  • reducing red tape.
The evaluation of LSLD began in mid-2016 and will conclude in mid-2019. An interim report and a summary of the findings are now available on the CESE website
We released a series of thematic evaluation reports as part of the ongoing evaluation of GTIL. GTIL is the NSW government’s plan to improve the quality of teaching in NSW schools. We evaluated key reforms under GTIL relating to:
  • school leadership initiatives
  • cadet and internship programs
  • professional experience.
Full reports and summaries can be found on the CESE website. 
CESE publications professional learning
We have received fantastic feedback so far about our registered professional learning. The aim of the courses is to connect education theory with school context. We now offer five courses: If you would like to learn more about these courses and the other face-to-face workshops that CESE offers, visit our professional learning library. The library also contains role-based suggestions to help staff determine what resources would benefit them most.
