Building the Action Plan

With the tabling of the Strategy, the ACT Government has concluded the first part of this conversation, but it is far from over. We will be continuing the conversation by developing an Action Plan, a guide for how the actions emerging from the consultation phase are to be implemented. This plan will be developed in collaboration with, and work alongside, Government, non-Government and community sectors.

By taking a collaborative approach with the community to define priority actions, we have the greatest chance of achieving the best outcomes for our students.

Phased Approach to 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

Teachers and school leaders will expand their skills to engage and support students so they are involved, resilient and equipped for the future.

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