Thousands of young Queenslanders will benefit from an historic investment of more than $900 million from 2009 to 2015, to improve educational outcomes for all students, under a joint state and federal partnership.
A range of National Partnerships demonstrate a shared commitment between the Queensland Government and the Australian Government to improve teaching quality, literacy and numeracy development of young people, and provide specific support for students to improve their educational outcomes.
The following National Partnerships target areas crucial to achieving these goals:
In Queensland, the partnerships will be implemented by the Department of Education, Training and Employment, with some in conjunction with Queensland Catholic Education Commission and Independent Schools Queensland .
The Department of Education, Training and Employment has created a suite of interconnected initiatives that blends the National Partnership reforms with current departmental strategies. These reforms and initiatives will be implemented through collaboration and consultation with key stakeholders.
Strengthened school accountability is a critical part of the Queensland strategy to improve student learning outcomes in state schools. The Teaching and Learning Audits as outlined in the Literacy and Numeracy NP and the Low SES NP will be used to focus state school principals on whole school systems and processes to ensure there is effective teaching and learning occurring in every classroom, every day for every child.
