NSW Budget funding to "modernise education"

The NSW Government will commit more than $21.4 billion towards implementing evidence-based initiatives in the education system.

Under the 2022–23 NSW Budget, additional funding will assist with programs including the School Success Model, Ambassador Schools Program, the new Kindergarten-to-Year 12 curriculum and the historic school-building program.

“Students and parents are at the centre of every decision we make as we continue to implement key reforms to deliver evidence-based teaching and learning, modernise the teaching profession and update the curriculum,” said Minister for Education and Early Learning Sarah Mitchell.

“Education is the great enabler. By supporting every student to achieve their best, we are securing a brighter future for all of NSW.”

The 2022–23 NSW Budget allocates $1.6 billion to deliver 23 new and upgraded schools, $1.2 billion to keep every school across the state well maintained and funding to continue the investment in growing and developing the teaching workforce, through initiatives including the Teacher Supply Strategy.

“Since 2017, the NSW Government has delivered $9.1 billion in school-building projects. This budget continues the school-building program, adding 23 major projects to our pipeline of capital works, for a total investment of $8.6 billion over the next four years,” Mitchell said.

“We know the importance of our teachers, which is why we are focusing on our Quality Time program to reduce administration and stepping up efforts to work with teachers to modernise and streamline their day-to-day work.

“NSW teachers are world class, and we will continue to invest in opportunities to not only attract and retain our best teachers but provide them with a rewarding career.”
