The State of Victoria’s Department of Education and Training leads the delivery of education and development services to children, young people and adults. It does this directly through government schools and indirectly through the regulation and funding of early childhood services, non-government schools and training programs.
The State of Victoria’s Department of Education and Training implements Victorian government policy on early childhood services, school education and training and higher education services. It also manages Victorian government schools and drives improvement in primary and secondary government education.
The goals it sets, the changes it implements, the systems it supports, and the services it offers are all focused on improving outcomes and opportunities for Victorians and supporting them to build happy, healthy and rewarding lives.
