Education Council endorse the National Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) School Education Strategy 2016-2026

Education Council endorsed the National Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) School Education Strategy 2016-2026. The strategy supports a long-term change agenda aiming to ensure that students have a stronger foundation in STEM and are inspired to take on more challenging STEM subjects. The Strategy acknowledges that while there is significant effort already underway within all jurisdictions to lift student outcomes in STEM, a renewed national focus on STEM education will provide fresh momentum to improve performance in this area. It identifies national collaborative actions in key areas where joint effort would support improved STEM outcomes, and draws on national and international evidence, recommendations from the Chief Scientist, discussions across jurisdictions and the national STEM Education Summit chaired by NSW and held in Sydney on Thursday 5 November.

The strategy will be published on the Education Council website in December 2015.
