This study comprised a policy analysis of the National School Chaplaincy Program (NSCP) and examined the genesis and implementation of the NSCP, which is part of school student support services operating alongside other support services, with the prime difference that it is a federal government intervention into state and territorial education responsibilities.

The study revealed poor student behaviour has not been resolved by the NSCP and there is inconsistency with the provision of welfare support resources to schools based on state and education sectors. In particular, the study found inconsistency in the availability of student support resources between education sectors.
