The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development offers learning and development support, services and resources for all Victorians, from birth through to adulthood.
To support the first years of a child’s life, the Department provides resources and manages legislation for child care, kindergarten and the health and development of babies and young children.
Victoria has a strong and vibrant school system based on quality teaching, and resources and programs that focus on student learning, health and wellbeing at primary and secondary school.
Opportunities for training and further education are as varied as the job market, find information on apprenticeships, courses, TAFE, universities and learn local organisations.
The Department supports the achievement of high-quality learning and development in Victoria from birth through to adulthood. Find information on our key directions and programs, Ministers and staff.
