MCEETYA Four-Year Plan, 2009-2012: A Companion Document for the Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians
Ministerial Council on Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs (NJ1)
This Ministerial Council on Education, Employment, Training and Youth (MCEETYA) four-year plan outlines the key strategies and initiatives Australian governments will undertake in each of these eight areas to support the achievement of the educational goals for young Australians and will be reviewed and updated as needed. The plan is aligned with relevant work of the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) and key COAG and other national agreements have formed the basis of the plan, including: (1) the National Education Agreement; (2) the Schools Assistance Act 2008, which confirms the Australian Government's financial support for the non-government school sector; (3) the National Partnership Agreement on Literacy and Numeracy; (4) the National Partnership Agreement on Low Socio-economic Status School Communities; (5) the National Partnership Agreement on Improving Teacher Quality; and (6) Other National Partnerships that may be agreed during the life of this plan. It is intended that the plan provides a framework for the planning of collaborative federalist activities in education, including relevant COAG initiatives. It is not intended as a detailed implementation plan, as these details are more appropriately determined at the jurisdictional level, and in many cases this planning is already underway via the COAG process. This document is organised according to the eight Commitments to Action outlined in the Melbourne Declaration. Within each of these eight areas, this document: (1) provides some contextual information on why each area of action is important (drawn from the Melbourne Declaration); (2) restates the specific commitment to action made by all Australian Education Ministers in the Melbourne Declaration; (3) provides information on agreed strategies and actions relevant to this commitment that will be supported in jurisdictions over the period from 2009-2012; and (4) provides information on the MCEETYA role in relation to each commitment to action. (Contains 9 footnotes.) [For companion report, "Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians," see ED534449.]
