About us

Good to Great Schools Australia (GGSA) partners with schools and school systems to support school improvement along a journey from Poor to Fair, Fair to Good and Good to Great.

GGSA is modern and innovative and we are well set up to support roles from being carried at home base

About the business unit

GGSA’s education model is based on the 6C Domains of Childhood, Class, Club, Culture, Civics and Community. Within each domain is a series of programs. Each program has a student learning component, or ‘curriculum’, to support it. GGSA’s 6C model programs are implemented in remote Queensland schools.

This curriculum is the program of work of the GGSA curriculum team, which is continually developing, reviewing and improving the 6C curriculum and supporting schools to deliver it. The team creates curriculum materials for each domain through a range of lessons, assessments, teacher guides and student worksheets. All units follow either explicit instruction (EI) or direct instruction (DI) pedagogical approach, or use a combination of both as required for each subject and program.
