About the scholarship

True’s All School relationships and sexuality education (RSE) program, is delivered in Queensland schools. The project provides the opportunity for research in the area of RSE in schools examining the perspectives of important stakeholders such as students, parents, teachers and principals. This research will contribute to knowledge in the field and exemplify barriers and opportunities to effective RSE delivery from a range of perspectives.

The True All School program is one of Australia’s leading RSE programs and has been developed for the needs of Australian schools and families. The program is evidence-informed and mapped to the national curriculum for Prep to Year 10. Year 11 and 12 programs were developed in line with the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) senior syllabus. While informal evaluations of the All School program have been collected for some time, no formal evaluation has been conducted. This evaluation will enable True to examine the effectiveness of the All School program and its acceptability to stakeholder groups.
