SchoolsHUB Direct Survey

DSPANZ member Capability Wise is assisting the Department of Education, Skills and Employment (DESE) to plan the introduction of a new API-based data reporting channel for non-government schools. As part of this process a survey has been conducted with non-government schools (and Approved Authorities), and has identified substantial demand for the new channel.

A short 5-minute survey is being undertaken in parallel with DSPs who already operate in this domain (or wish to commence) and DSPANZ members are encouraged to participate. The survey closes on Friday 13 August. Members can read more here.
