About QLA

QLA has over twenty-five years experience in organisational improvement.

Our work with schools came about through our interest in, and passion for the continual improvement of learning. It began in the late 1990s, with the Australian Quality Council (AQC), when the AQC was engaged to lead programs that began a translation of industry improvement philosophies and practices to school education.

QLA was established in 2002 by Michael King and Jane Kovacs to continue to support organisations, and particularly schools, with their improvement efforts.

We feel privileged to be experiencing first-hand the enormous potential this approach offer’s to organisations, and the joy it brings to the people who work and learn in them.

Our purpose

QLA exists to facilitate organisational improvement using proven, time-tested principles and practices.

Our purpose is: To improve learning and learning how to improve.
