The NSW Department of Education provides, funds and regulates education services for NSW students from early childhood to secondary school, delivering world-class education through its public schools and providing funding support to non-government schools.

We are the largest provider of public education in Australia with responsibility for delivering high-quality public education to two-thirds of the NSW student population. We ensure young children get the best start in life by supporting and regulating the early childhood education and care sector. 

The Department employs, develops and supports teachers, leaders and other staff to deliver the best outcomes for students and to advance the wellbeing of Aboriginal people.

Its ambition is to be the leading education system in Australia, and one of the best in the world.  Explore the NSW Department of Education Strategic Plan.
