Where we work

Ardoch uses community data to identify areas with the highest need for educational support.

Ardoch partners with schools that have an Index for Community Socio-Educational Advantage (ICSEA) score under 1000, which means they are identified by government as facing disadvantage. More than 4,600 schools in Australia across the government, independent and Catholic sectors have an ICSEA value of under 1000.

We also use the Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) data together with community data about socio-economic disadvantage to identify target areas for our early years work where young children are particularly vulnerable when they start school. Typically, we work with early years services located close to primary schools where we also work.

Ardoch currently partners with over 135 early years centres and schools around Australia.
