The Department of Education, Training and Employment (DETE) Strategic Plan provides a 4 year outlook for the department describing our strategic direction, priorities, outcomes and measures of success. The plan reflects our ongoing commitment to delivering the best possible early years, education and training services and outcomes for Queenslanders.
The plan is reviewed and updated each year by the department to ensure that it is reflective of current and emerging contexts and expectations. An important part of this process is to develop our plan with input from our customers, partners and stakeholders. We invite your input to help shape and improve our forward planning.
The 2013-2017 Strategic Plan communicates the important role each and every DETE employee and our partners play in providing Queenslanders with the knowledge and skills to participate effectively in our community and the economy.
Every day in every location across the state our people are making a real difference to the lives of Queenslanders. Our vision Engaging minds. Empowering futures. focuses our efforts on creating opportunities for every learner to be successful. Over the life of this plan our people will be supported and empowered to make the decisions that will make real differences to the lives of learners across our Early Childhood Education and Care, School and Vocational Education and Training sectors.
This strategic plan connects our activities with our key reform initiatives of Great teachers = Great results and Great skills. Real opportunities . Changing how we work together will create new opportunities for innovation across the learning spectrum and the way we deliver services. Our challenge is to make sure our practices are informed by evidence and that we work collaboratively across the system to share and learn from each other.
I look forward to working with you as we continue to deliver real outcomes for Queenslanders.
