What’s happening now? First Phase Implementation


This strategy sets the direction for the future of education in the ACT, a journey to be taken in three phases over the next 10 years. Action within the three phases of implementation will embed equity, student agency, access and inclusion into the lived experience for all young people.

First Phase: Years 1 - 2

The First Phase Implementation Plan outlines clear, tangible actions and commitments for education across six priorities:

  • strengthening inclusive education
  • giving students more of a say
  • supporting a workforce of the future
  • community schools
  • giving young people the best start
  • focus the system on what matters most.

This phase includes initiatives funded in the 2018 Budget. Future initiatives may need to be developed and considered for future budgets.
