NSW Premier's state priorities

Better Services, Increasing Cultural Participation

Increase attendance at cultural venues and events in NSW.

Participation in the arts promotes personal and collective wellbeing, as well as contributing strongly to an innovative and robust local economy. Increasing the attendance at our cultural venues and events will have flow-on benefits for job creation, the visitor economy and education.

This requires strategic partnership across government, business, education and the creative industries to ensure NSW continues to lead the country in cultural employment, screen production and cultural tourism.

Please view further information on the premier's priorities. 

NSW Department of Education strategic plan and core business

The department's vision is to be Australia's best education system and one of the finest in the world.

Our purpose is to prepare young people for rewarding lives as engaged citizens in a complex and dynamic society.

Children and young people are at the centre of all our decision-making. We ensure young children get the best start in life by supporting and regulating the early childhood education and care sector. We are the largest provider of public education in Australia with the responsibility for delivering high-quality public education to two-thirds of the NSW student population. We respect and value Aboriginal people as Australia's First Nation peoples.
