Economic Significance of Independent Schools to the Western Australian Economy

The Association of Independent Schools of Western Australia (AISWA) recently engaged AEC Group Pty Ltd (AEC) to analyse and quantify the important contribution Independent Schools make to the Western Australian economy in terms of their contribution to the WA Gross State Product (GSP), employment and household incomes; the savings they deliver to governments and therefore taxpayers; and the economic value that flows from the enhanced education outcomes achieved by Independent School students.

The original report, of the same title, was commissioned by AISWA and released on 24 May 2017.  This report has now been updated to reflect the most recent (2018) financial data on schools.  The full report can be accessed via the link below.  A one-page infographic outlining some of the key findings from the report has also been developed. Schools are encouraged to share the findings of this research with their school communities.
