In a snapshot
The role of the Education and Training Directorate is to ensure access to a high quality education for all and to position the ACT to lead the nation in educational outcomes for students.
The Directorate has responsibility for public schools and early intervention education programs, the regulation of early childhood education and care services, the registration of non-government schools and home education and the planning and coordination of vocational education and training.
We are committed to ensuring that every child, young person and adult benefits from a high quality, accessible education, care and training system. We strive to ensure that all people in education, care and training will learn, thrive and be equipped with the skills and attitudes to lead fulfilling, productive and responsible lives.
By setting challenging goals, the Directorate will continue to lead the nation in education, care and training and ensure that our highly educated and skilled community will contribute to the economic and social prosperity of our city and the nation.
Our delivery of education, care and training outcomes is underpinned by our commitment to the ACT Government’s values of respect, integrity, collaboration and innovation.
We will ensure student success through:
- quality teaching that engages students and supports the development of capabilities for life
- ensuring all ACT public schools provide positive and success-oriented learning environments
- providing learning pathways for students resulting in an educated and skilled workforce that meets the present and future needs of the ACT and region
- ensuring that the Directorate is recognised as a responsive, innovative and high achieving organisation that delivers on its commitments.
