School Resourcing Model – Action plan for the future

Our vision is for a strong public education system that ensures equity and gives every child the opportunity to engage, grow and achieve.

Schools are at the centre of this vision and school leadership that lifts performance and capability is critical to the Northern Territory becoming the most improving education system in Australia.

To help us achieve our vision, we are building a new School Resourcing Model, informed by recommendations from the independent review of global school budgets. All recommendations from the review have been accepted in full or in principle, subject to further investigation and analysis.

Our School Resourcing Model will meet the needs of students and will provide schools with flexibility, budget certainty, improved support and budget management. Our action plan for the new School Resourcing Model focuses on four solution themes:

  • Better support for schools through targeted investment
  • Improving budget certainty for schools
  • Better budget management
  • Targeting funds to student need

The action plan is focused on building a School Resourcing Model that meets student need and provides schools with flexibility, budget certainty and improved support for better budget management. It also includes a timeline and key milestones so that we are accountable, transparent and deliver on our targets.
