The state’s first ever Country Education Strategy will improve the equity of opportunity for school students in the regions and help achieve our world-class ambition.
Backed by an initial $15m investment over three years, the strategy aims to improve access to support services for country students and remove some of the barriers to attracting and retaining staff.
The strategy will also see upgrades to Information Technology in regional schools and ensure that country perspectives are given greater prominence in the development and delivery of our programs and policies.
Country students will also gain access to a broader range of subjects.
The strategy was developed in consultation with regional principals and students, including representatives from the Rural Youth Ambassador Program which will receive further investment under the new initiative.
