Update of Melbourne Declaration
In 2008, the Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians was agreed by all Australian education ministers. Those goals set the 10 year direction for education and were foundational for the Australian curriculum. They are an important framework for how education policy is implemented across the country.
These goals will soon expire and so are due for review. The Minister for Education, Hon Dan Tehan MP, has announced that he will take a proposal for updating the Goals to the Education Council meeting on 14 December.
