Department of Education and Training: Parent Engagement Campaign

(Question No. 1536)

Mr Conroy asked the Minister representing the Minister for Education and Training, in writing, on 15 September 2015:

In respect of the $138,532.00 tender to Wallis Consulting Pty Ltd for 'Benchmark, tracking and evaluation research. Parent engagement campaign' (CN3290056), (a) to which policy and/or initiative does this relate, and (b) what are the aims of this research.

Mr Hartsuyker: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The Government committed $5 million dollars in the 2015−16 Budget for a Parent Engagement Campaign to raise awareness of, and provide support for, positive parent involvement in children's learning.

Consistent with the Guidelines on Information Advertising Campaigns by non-corporate Commonwealth entities, the department engaged Wallis Consulting Pty Ltd to provide market research services with the purpose of monitoring and evaluating the impact of the Parent Engagement campaign.
