Our Evidence
and Impact

Using latest contemporary education principles and independent
evidence based approaches to achieving higher knowledge retention and behavioural change.

Proven evaluation methodology and evidence 

Our student-centred programs foster critical thinking, teamwork and active participation.

Each year, we survey students and teachers about our programs and consistently we receive data like this:

  • 99% of teachers say their students are actively engaged in Life Education Victoria programs.
  • 99% of teachers say Life Education Victoria programs equip students to positively change their behaviour.

In addtion, we undertake deeper measurement of our impact through follow up surveys.

Instruments we use to measure our impact

Exit Card

Students respond to a statement related to their learning and place a “Harold” token next to an emoji on the wall that best describes how they feel.

Commitment to Change

Students receive a commitment card at the end of each session and make a commitment to improving their health and wellbeing further embedding the learning from the Life Education session. We then check back in on the students commitments through our Student Agency and Reflection Program.

Stars Program

A digital reflection incursion where students check back in with Harold and the Life Ed Vic facilitator to see how they are going with their commitments to change. Students can also seek strategies, tips and advice from Harold and his facilitator.

We are proudly supported by the Victorian Department Education and Training.

Collecting effective data to demonstrate impact and outcomes.

Reimagining the range and nature of learning experiences provides Life Education Victoria with opportunities to gather richer data that demonstrate impact.

LEV has developed 'impact targets' that drives the data we collect as a way to build a strong base for our programs.

For example, rather than surveying students on how much they enjoyed the session or what they've learnt, we capture multimodal evidence of change-making artefacts students create, projects they participate in, goals they set to effect change etc.

Reimagining learning programs has opened up new ways of collecting data from both teachers and students. 

For over 14 continuous years, we appreciate the funding provided by The Victorian Government of Department of Education and Training.
