Empowering our schools

Digital innovation continues to reshape our world, from the way we communicate and learn, to the jobs we do, and the decisions we make.

We must embrace that change, seize those opportunities, and prepare ourselves by delivering an education experience that is connected, informed and empowered.

Some of the initiatives delivered include the Rural Access Gap program, the Digital Maturity Planner, and more streamlined communication between schools and parents and carers.
