The Department of Education, Skills and Employment works to ensure Australians can experience the wellbeing and economic benefits that quality education, skills and employment provide.

Strategic priorities include:
Ensuring quality, affordable and accessible early education and care for families
Improving schooling outcomes for children
Preparing our future workforce through globally competitive tertiary education, training and research sectors
Helping people find and keep a job, create their own job, change jobs, reskill and enjoy fulfilling careers
Developing a strong evidence base for effective policy that reflects and understands varied needs of the Australian population, business and industry.
