About the role

About the Department of Education
The NSW Department of Education provides, funds and regulates education services for NSW students from early childhood to secondary school, delivering world-class education through its public schools and providing funding support to non-government schools. We employ, develop and support teachers, leaders and other staff to deliver the best outcomes for students and to advance the wellbeing of Aboriginal people.
 
Located with the Department of Education (DoE), the Early Childhood Education (ECE) Directorate has an annual budget of over $400 million, administering several programs and funding streams designed to meet the goals of the National Partnership Agreements on Universal Access to Early Childhood Education and the National Quality Agenda, with a focus on improved participation of children from Aboriginal and low income backgrounds. 
 
As a regulatory authority under the national regulatory arrangements for early childhood education and care, the Directorate regulates approximately 5,500 services across the state. For services regulated under the National Quality Framework, this includes a process of assessment and quality rating by regional staff against the seven quality areas that make up the National Quality Standards.
 
The Aboriginal Services team develops and implements programs to improve the quality of education being provided to Aboriginal children and supports the sector to positively engage with Aboriginal families and communities. The team currently has a number of programs that are currently being implemented and are also looking at potential future projects.

  • Provide a range of secretariat and administrative services, including coordinating committee meetings and preparing papers, to support project delivery.
  • Coordinate and facilitate workshops and consultation with Aboriginal communities, organisations and early childhood education services

  • Delivering multiple project activities in line with agreed standards, given tight deadlines and competing demands and priorities.
