2021-2025 Strategic plan

Together we give every Victorian the best learning and development experience, making our state a smarter, fairer and more prosperous place.

The plan outlines our overarching direction over the next four years, planned outcomes and the strategies we will use to achieve them. It brings together current and planned activity, including Education State initiatives and key organisational reforms.

2018-2021 Disability action plan

The 2018-2021 Disability action plan outlines our commitment to:

  • the Victorian government’s vision of an inclusive Victoria
  • building diverse and inclusive workplaces
  • developing workplace cultures that are safe and accessible, build respect and embrace the unique skills and qualities of all our employees.

The plan acknowledges that everyone will experience disability in a different way, depending on their individual circumstances, life experiences, and the nature of their needs and abilities. It also recognises that our corporate workforce and our early childhood education, schools, training and skills systems need to be able to respond to these individual needs in order to support every Victorian to reach their potential.

2019-2021 Cultural diversity plan

The Department’s Cultural Diversity Plan for 2019-2021 sets out how the Department of Education and Training will be working to improve Victoria’s learning and development services to meet the needs of families, children and young people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds, particularly recent immigrants. It also includes the work being undertaken to equip all Victorian children and young people to understand and navigate cultural and linguistic differences within an increasingly interconnected world.

The Plan has 22 actions to support and improve access, participation and educational outcomes for the CALD population in early childhood, schools and training and skills settings.

The Department is required under the Multicultural Victoria Act 2011 to report annually on the progress of these and other initiatives.
