The Department of Education's Annual Report plays an important role in fulfilling the department's commitment to accountability and transparency. The Annual Report provides comprehensive information about the department's organisational culture, people management, corporate governance processes and future directions.
The report is published for a diverse audience, including Parliament, staff, parents, academics, industry and business partners, the media, other government agencies and the community. The
Annual Reporting Policy (PDF, 93KB) for all Queensland schools sets out the minimum annual reporting requirements for all state and non-state schools.
Queensland schools meet the reporting obligations required by both the Queensland and the Australian Governments by publishing this information. The department has extensive datasets of student and school performance data survey results, administrative collections, research studies and evaluation reports. Access our data through the
Open Data portal, the
School Data hub and the Training Data hub.
Engaging in high-quality research and utilising research findings ensures the department's initiatives are based on the best available evidence. Research helps to anticipate any emerging issues and challenges the department may face in the future. Research Services oversees research activities including research conducted in state schools, communicating research findings and coordinating research projects.
