Future of Education Strategy

In February 2017, the ACT Government embarked on a community-led conversation to develop a strategy for the future of education for the next ten years. This conversation took place over 16 months, with input from over 5,000 people. Guided by this conversation, and informed by peer-reviewed research, the ACT Government has developed The Future of Education Strategy that will guide our education system over the next ten years.

The foundations of the strategy are to:

  • place students at the centre of their learning
  • empower teachers, school leaders and other professionals to meet the learning needs of all students
