The Foundation is delighted to announce that, after establishing the Fogarty EDvance program in 2012 and a successful decade of program delivery, it is partnering with Knowledge Society for the delivery of the program going forward.  This includes the commencement of a 10th cohort of schools in 2023, bringing the total number of schools working with Fogarty EDvance to 138. 

As part of this arrangement, the Fogarty EDvance team is now based at Knowledge Society and working with the larger Knowledge Society team.

The Foundation remains the Founding Partner of Fogarty EDvance, continues to fund the program and is on the Advisory Board for governance and strategy.  It will also continue to work with alumni schools to support them to improve student outcomes.  The Program also continues to be supported by the Department of Education and Catholic Education WA.   

Foundation Chairperson, Annie Fogarty AM said: “we chose Knowledge Society as our partner because of the excellent work it is doing to enable school improvement in other jurisdictions.  Its Catalyst program, in particular, is highly regarded and Knowledge Society’s work nationally provides the potential for schools in low socioeconomic communities across Australia, not just WA, to benefit from the EDvance program”.
