Strategic Issues for 2012-13 Education Increasing access to quality early learning programs and engagement with families, particularly for children in very remote locations. Improving student attendance at school. Further improving levels of achievement in national testing for years 3, 5, 7 and 9, with particular attention to closing the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students. Increasing cohesion and rigour around a comprehensive school improvement program. Providing quality learning experiences at all stages of schooling through implementation of the Australian Curriculum. Providing robust and flexible options, including virtual delivery models, for senior years students to ensure students are maximising access to, and participation in, future education, training and employment pathways. Embedding and sustaining recruitment, retention and development of quality teachers and school leaders with a particular emphasis on our Indigenous workforce. Enhancing cohesion of innovative, integrated place-based service delivery, particularly in the Territory Growth Towns.
