Queensland's education reforms over the last decade have already made a difference by delivering greater access to kindy, a full-time Prep year, Year 7 into high school and the Queensland Certificate of Education. We are ready to do more.
The Advancing education action plan sets out the next phase of our transformation by ensuring every child and young person is ready for the opportunities their future holds.
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 1,000 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.
