Every young person deserves a quality education, no matter where they live.

Education provides a brighter future for our children, and now more than ever, students need to be ready to meet the demands of new industries, changing technology and global innovation.

That’s why my government is committed to an education system that provides students with the skills and knowledge to meet this challenge.

We are providing more opportunities for students to study science, technology, engineering and maths – including robotics and coding.

We are implementing the Digital Technologies curriculum, establishing a Coding Academy and virtual science, technology and mathematics academies for students in Years 5 to 9.

We are supporting our teachers throughout the state to be the best educators they can be.

Our plan recognises that literacy and numeracy are the foundation of learning for every child. Our statewide Reading Centre, which is linked to the Autism Hub, provides specialist advice for teachers and parents to support reading and learning.

We will lift outcomes for all students and deliver world class education.
