The Mission of the Institute is to enhance the quality of education and to close the gap between high and low performing students and between high and low performing schools. This will be achieved through conducting educational research and development that will reform educational policy, enhance school leadership to achieve school improvement, and enhance teachers' knowledge and practice to improve student engagement and learning outcomes.
The Institute provides a stimulating environment for the pursuit of educational research and development; conducts applied research in collaboration with industry partners that will impact on schools, teachers and students and the broader community; translates research findings through development and consultancy activities into curriculum resources, evaluation tools and professional learning programs that impact on teaching and learning and school culture.
