​Advancing education

An action plan for education in Queensland

Education has a profound influence on the lives of children and young people.

The Queensland Government has a plan for education that will see us take our world-class education system further and prepare our students for the challenges of tomorrow. Advancing education: An action plan for education in Queensland puts our students on the path to success.

On 14 October 2015, the Premier and the Minister for Education and Minister for Tourism and Major Events released a consultation draft of the Advancing education action plan, commencing a 10 week consultation process. More than 1000 Queenslanders joined in the conversation about the future of education in Queensland.

Queenslanders overwhelmingly confirmed their support for the direction set for education across the state.

The renewed Advancing education action plan responds to the call from Queenslanders for a greater focus on active partnerships with the community and strengthening teacher excellence.

Our plan for advancing education will inspire students to become lifelong learners, global citizens and successful people, confidently navigating their future.

It will position schools to more effectively support students to develop the knowledge, skills and qualities they need to be job-ready for the future, building on the essentials of literacy and numeracy.

Every Queenslander plays a part in making the difference – early childhood educators, school staff, families, communities, industry and our education partners.

By working together we can ensure that our children and young people have the opportunity to benefit from the life changing effects of education and become active members of their communities.​
