Welcome to the ACT Education Directorate

The ACT Government believes every child deserves a great education and the life chances which flow from it. The Education Directorate, develops and delivers educational services to empower each child and young person in the ACT to learn for life.

We deliver high quality education across 88 public schools educating over 49,000 students from early childhood through to college. We also register non-government schools in the ACT.

Our Strategic Plan 2018-21: A Leading Learning Organisation explains what we do, what we want our organisation to become, what we want to achieve, how we will achieve it and how we will hold ourselves to account. It has emerged from the ‘Future of Education’ discussion that has occurred across the ACT community.
