Education Engagement Strategy

Education Engagement Strategy

The Northern Territory Department of Education is developing an engagement strategy for all children and young people, from birth to Year 12. This includes young people in flexible learning arrangements, non-government schools and early childhood education services.

The Engagement Strategy has the primary aim of engaging every child and student in learning by listening to the voices of parents, students, children and community working collaboratively to ensure education services are aligned to their needs and aspirations. Through consultation the Department of Education wants to hear what schools, early years programs and services and the department can do to engage all children and young people in learning.

On Tuesday 25 May 2021 the Minister for Education, Hon. Lauren Moss MLA launched the public Education Engagement Strategy discussion paper. This can be found at

Public consultation will run until 1 August 2021.
