Australian Early Development Census (AEDC)
The Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) is a population measure of how young children in Australia have developed by the time they start their first year of full-time school. The AEDC looks at groups of children in the community, not individuals.
HELP and other Information
The Australian Government provides financial assistance to students through the Higher Education Loan Program (HELP), which consists of five different loan schemes.
The Family-School Partnerships Framework
The Family-School Partnerships Framework supports parent engagement in education for improved student learning.
Parent Engagement in Children’s Learning
Parents, families, and carers are a child’s first and most important teachers. The Australian Government has many initiatives and resources to help parents, schools, and communities work together to improve their child’s learning.
Student Resilience and Wellbeing
The Australian Government recognises that schools play a vital role in promoting the social and emotional development and wellbeing of young Australians.
Australia has a national curriculum, the Australian Curriculum, which provides schools, teachers, parents, students, and the community with a clear understanding of what students should learn, regardless of where they live or what school system they are in.
Students with disability
The Australian Government supports the rights of children and young people with disability to have the same educational opportunities as other school students.
