Our Vision

“Together we give every Victorian the best learning and development experience, making our state a smarter, fairer and more prosperous place.”

The department is responsible for delivering and regulating statewide learning and development services to approximately one-third of all Victorians, across the early childhood education, school education, and training and skills sectors.

We support Victorians to reach their potential, regardless of their background, postcode or circumstance, and to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to participate and thrive in a complex economy and society, as well as engage as global citizens.

The goals we set, changes we implement, systems we support and services we offer are all focused on improving outcomes and opportunities for Victorians. We are committed to supporting Victorians to build happy, healthy and rewarding lives.
