The Queensland Government is committed to ensuring that all students, no matter where they live, have access to a range of high quality education and training programs.
Advancing rural and remote education in Queensland state schools action plan sets the direction for supporting students, families, teachers and school leaders in rural and remote areas. It focuses on every rural and remote student succeeding, valuing our people and building positive partnerships. These focus areas were informed and affirmed by key stakeholders during an
extensive consultation process.
As we move towards the end of the 4-year implementation of the plan, it is time to reflect on how far we have come, what has changed both in Queensland, Australia and internationally, and what we still need to do to ensure that every rural and remote student has the opportunity to succeed.
We are seeking to engage with rural and remote stakeholders across Queensland and will use this input to inform the updated action plan, ensuring it continues to provide vision and leadership for the department in supporting rural and remote education. A
discussion guide has been developed to guide these conversations. You are welcome to provide your feedback by emailing
