In respect to ongoing Covid-19 concerns, research applicants are encouraged to minimise their impact on schools and consider remote / virtual research where applicable. The Department’s prime concern is to keep schools safe, not only for our children and young people, but for all staff that support the delivery of education on our sites. It is a condition of any existing or future approvals that researchers comply with COVID-19 safety requirements.
Educational Performance and Review (EPR) coordinates all applications to conduct research in Government schools in Tasmania.
Applications to conduct research are considered by the Departmental Research Applications Advisory Committee (RAAC), which makes a recommendation to the Director, Education Performance and Review for final approval.
Guidelines and Research Application Form may be downloaded from this site, completed, signed and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
