Home Learning: Resources for Students and Families
ACT Education Directorate
We aim to develop and deliver educational services to empower each child and young person in the ACT to learn for life.
The 2021 ACT Public Education Awards recognise the exceptional people in our public-school communities, who have gone above and beyond the normal expectations for their role to ensure all children receive high quality public education.
Meet Cyrus – he’s a Year 12 student at Dickson College who’s working towards his Certificate III in Business and through an Australian School-based Apprenticeship, is already working in an office environment for the ACT Education Directorate’s Careers and Vocational Pathways team - an opportunity he says, has changed his life.
We are seeking views from students with disability (both current and former), carers, families, advocates, school staff and the broader community.
The Respectful Relationships, Sexuality and Consent Education Roundtable event held in July 2021, drew together a wide range of interested stakeholders across school sectors, universities and the community.
A positive start to school can help children to become lifelong learners.
