Each year the Department publishes its high-level work programme in the form of the Action Plan for Education. This articulates the Department’s ambition, values and goals, based on our Statement of Strategy. See Cumasú: Statement of Strategy 2019 - 2021 and 2019 Action Plan for Education .

The Department will publish an Action Plan for 2020. This will provide an opportunity to take stock of progress already made under our strategy and what we still need to do to achieve our goals. Reports on our progress are available here: progress reports .

Our goals are to:

2. Advance the progress of learners at risk of educational disadvantage and learners with special educational needs in order to support them to achieve their potential

3. Equip education and training providers with the skills and support to provide a quality learning experience

4. Intensify the relationships between education and the wider community, society and the economy

5. Lead in the delivery of strategic direction and supportive systems, in partnership with key stakeholders in education and training.
