National STEM Strategy

Education CouncilThe Education Council of Ministers has endorsed a comprehensive plan for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics education in Australian schools for 2016-2026.

The strategy has identified five key areas for national action through which school education has the greatest leverage:

  1. Increasing student STEM ability, engagement, participation and aspiration
  2. Increasing teacher capacity and STEM teaching quality
  3. Supporting STEM education opportunities within school systems
  4. Facilitating effective partnerships with tertiary education providers, business and industry
  5. Building a strong evidence base
