Non-Government Schools Not for Profit Regulatory Framework development and Not-for-Profit Guidelines review
The Department is working with key stakeholders to develop a Regulatory Framework to enhance the regulation of the not for profit requirements under the Education Act 1990 ('Act').
The Department is also reviewing the Not-For-Profit Guidelines for Non-Government Schools (2019) (the ‘NFP Guidelines’). This is to ensure that they continue to assist non-government schools to understand and comply with the not for profit requirements of the Act.
It is anticipated that the Regulatory Framework and revised NFP Guidelines will be finalised in early 2023.
