Learning First is committed to education reform. We use research, consulting and development to help improve education systems in Australia and around the world.



We produce research that investigates issues in key areas of school education such as initial teacher education, professional learning, school leadership and reform strategy. These reports draw from the evidence base and the world’s best-performing education systems to provide effective solutions to improve schools.


We provide advisory services to governments and education leaders offering evidence-based solutions on key aspects of education reform such as strategy, workforce development and school improvement. We have advised governments around the world on how to improve student learning across whole systems, with a focus on practical solutions that actually work.


We convene key education policy leaders, practitioners and researchers through workshops, round-tables and communities of practice to help accelerate effective education reform.
