Education drives positive outcomes for individuals and society. Governments are actively looking to improve their education strategies, policies, and services to enhance engagement, wellbeing, and attainment. These reforms span from early childhood education through school to tertiary education and training systems. Initiatives are designed to address social and inter-generational disadvantage and ultimately boost Australia’s health and wellbeing, productivity, and workforce participation.
