Open data

The department is committed to providing public access to quality information and data. This page provides useful links to both department and non-department data.

NSW Government Open Data Policy

The department supports the NSW Open Data Policy, which aims to improve public access to government data. Sharing open data streamlines service delivery and reporting, enables value-adding and supports transparency.

Education data on Data.NSW

The Data Hub for NSW education data was retired in June 2024. The department’s public education data is now located at Data.NSW, the Department of Customer Service’s open data portal.

Data.NSW provides the public, media, policy makers and researchers with access to data sets collected by a range of NSW Government agencies.

The department’s published data sets relate to early childhood education, public schools and vocational education and training (VET). New data sets will be added in the future once they are identified and assessed to be suitable for publication in line with the NSW Open Data Policy.
