Over the past decade, Indonesia has substantially increased its spending on education and now many more millions of children are in school. There is a significant void in knowledge about what teachers in Indonesia are teaching in the classroom, what the primary constraints they face are, and how teaching quality can be more efficiently and effectively improved. The Government of Australia (GOA), through the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), is seeking to assist the Government of Indonesia (GOI) to fill this void by establishing Innovation for Indonesia's School Children (INOVASI).
INOVASI is an ambitious new four-year (with the possibility of an extension for another four), AUD 49 million program. It will collaborate closely with the GOI at the district, provincial and national level to develop and implement action-oriented research and pilots to answer the broad question: "**What works to improve student learning outcomes in Indonesia?"** It will focus on three sub-topics of investigation: the quality of teaching in the classroom, the quality of support for teachers, and learning for all. INOVASI is managed by Palladium on behalf of DFAT, and will formally start on 18 January 2016.
The key role of the Deputy Program Director – Research, Innovation and Learning is to coordinate a program of research, pilot and Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) activities designed to advance understanding of how to improve student learning outcomes in Indonesian primary and junior secondary schools.

- Lead in the development of an evidence-based strategy for improving student learning outcomes in project supported sites;

- Ensure coordination and quality assurance of all INOVASI technical activities;
