Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2019 Week 11 Hansard (Thursday, 26 September 2019) . . Page.. 4035 ..


(7) When will the final report from the SEAC be delivered and will it be made public; if not, why not.

Ms Berry: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) The School Education Advisory Council (SEAC) literature review, completed in 2019, did not precede the Government’s decision to introduce the Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) framework in ACT Schools. The Schools for All Report (2015), guided the implementation of PBL.

(2) The SEAC literature review covered details of key policy and practice being implemented internationally and in Australian jurisdictions, which aim to respond to student violence and bullying.

(3) PBL is being incrementally rolled out through ACT Public Schools. This incremental approach has allowed a greater fidelity of implementation. All ACT Government schools will adopt PBL.

(4) The Directorate employs a team of PBL coaches known as ‘External Coaches’, who deliver training.

(5) External PBL Coaches are selected through an open recruitment process. They require teaching qualifications and demonstrated capacity to meet the School Leader C capability framework.

(6) Every PBL school identifies an internal implementation team, including an Internal Coach, through a school nomination process. The External Coach works closely with the Internal Coach to guide and mentor them.

(7) Consistent with the Terms of Reference, SEAC provided the final report to government on 19 August 2019. The report will be made public following government consideration.
