Research & Development

The research division of North Shore Coaching College continues to work on new and ongoing projects aimed at improving students’ standards and discovering new methods of learning. NSCC has won two research grants from the Australian Government to discover appropriate intervention strategies for improving problem solving outcomes of middle-primary to lower-high school students.

In 1999, North Shore Coaching College together with The University of Melbourne successfully applied for a SPIRT grant to research ways to improve problem solving abilities of students. Close to 1,000 students were involved in the “proof of concept” and the final report was well received.

In 2005, the same combination was awarded a new 3-year Australian Government grant which aims to raise students’ problem solving skills through the extensive use of computers.

This places North Shore Coaching College on a sound platform to ensure that our students are able to benefit from new teaching methodologies to ensure that they fulfil their potential.
