Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR)



The Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) is the lead government agency providing national leadership in education and workplace training, transition to work and conditions and values in the workplace. DEEWR seeks to deliver government programs as effectively as possible, and aims to ensure that Australians understand the policy directions of government, their intent and how services can be accessed.

In the context of the National Goals agreed on by the National, State, and Territory Governments, the Australian Government aims to improve the quality of education in Australia leading to improvement in the learning outcomes of Indigenous students. It also supports emerging and ongoing national initiatives in relation to the teaching profession and professional development, curriculum, assessment and student welfare.
