The NT Government is investing $10 million over the next 3 years to deliver a number of key parts of the strategy.

A detailed implementation plan will be developed in consultation with key stakeholders.

Consultation was held between May and August 2021, with 72 consultation sessions occurring in 21 location across the NT, including remote communities. Additionally, 51 online submissions were received by email and the Have Your Say website.

The views and ideas that have been shared as part of these consultations has helped shape the strategy.

The consultations took many forms so that as many voices as possible could be captured. This included:

  • community visits
  • school visits
  • roundtable discussions
  • online forums
  • larger public community forums
  • workshops
  • online submissions.

A reflections paper has been released, which was shaped by the questions posed in the 2021 education engagement strategy discussion paper and the beliefs and assumptions that underpin those questions.

The Department of Education worked with Charles Darwin University to collate, analyse and prepare the reflections paper.

This includes an analysis of what was heard during the consultation and encapsulates what children, young people, their families, communities, educators and non-government organisations believe early childhood education and care services, schools and the education system can do more of to engage all children and young people in learning.
