Great Results Guarantee


In 2014, the Queensland Government commenced the Great Results Guarantee, a four-year funding initiative to improve student outcomes. This program passes on to Queensland state schools funding provided by the Australian Government's Students First initiative.

For 2015 (the second year of the initiative) the Queensland Government is investing a total of $183 million in additional funding for state schools to improve student performance. This is an increase of $52 million from the Government's investment in this initiative in 2014. All schools will receive a share of this funding in addition to standard resource allocations. All Queensland state schools, including Independent Public Schools, will enter into an agreement committing them to guarantee that every student will either:
  • achieve the National Minimum Standard for literacy and numeracy for their year level or
  • have an evidence-based plan, developed by the school, in place to address their specific learning needs.
For 2015, Independent Public Schools must establish their agreement with their school council and all other state schools are to enter into an agreement with the Director-General, Department of Education, Training and Employment.
Each school's agreement will outline how the additional funding will be invested in 2015 to improve student outcomes and school performance. Schools will publish their agreements on their websites so that the community can see how this funding is being used.
