Governance framework

The Department for Education has a governance framework that shows the vision and values of the department as outlined in the Strategic Plan. It outlines the key elements that set out, influence, and shape our decision-making as well as the legislative and public reporting requirements that we must follow.

The governance framework is currently under review to be updated in July 2020.
