A created data asset will help us understand how our education system is performing and evaluate the efficiency of mental health interventions delivered in schools to support students.
This project will create an enduring database linking education and wellbeing data from multiple databases, including enrollment, attendance, behaviour management, academic achievement and wellbeing of students, over time to reflect the students’ journey throughout their school life.
A collaborative, coordinated approach will maximise the comparability of data while still permitting the use of data that differs across States and Territories.

What does this project enable?
This project will enable high quality, policy relevant research on young people’s wellbeing and engagement during their schooling years by combining this with demographic, attendance, and NAPLAN data. This has direct consequences to young people’s education outcomes, adult outcomes, and Australia’s future economy.
