Research in our Schools
Catholic Education Western Australia is responsible for approving research in Catholic schools and regional offices across the four Dioceses.
It is recognised that research is important in providing evidence to inform education policy making and practice. Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA) is committed to continuous improvement and sees strategic partnerships with, and support for, researchers as an important way of achieving this.
CEWA reviews all research applications according to various guidelines and principles and researchers should refer to these when developing an application. These can be found at Guidelines and Principles for Research in Western Australian Catholic Schools and Offices.
Research applications should be submitted on the CEWA form “Application to Conduct Research in Western Australian Catholic Schools” and attach all relevant documentation (see links below). The National Research Application form can also be used where several jurisdictions are involved in the research.
