Education Act 2015

Home Education Policy Consultation

The Education Act 2015 (the Act) included a number of changes to the provision of home education in the Northern Territory. The department undertook a review of home education administration, and policy and guidelines advice to ensure alignment with the Act. New Home Education policy and guidelines were drafted that outlined proposed changes to current processes to enable the department and parents to comply with the Act.

The department sought feedback from home education parents, principals and department staff on how the proposed changes to home education administration and the policy and guidelines impacted them.

For final versions of Home Education documents, please refer to the revised Policy, Guidelines and supporting documents below.
