Secretary: Mark Scott

One of the key tasks for the government leading into the 2020s is to prepare the people of NSW ready for the next generation of jobs.

To do this, the Education cluster will drive early childhood, primary, secondary and all tertiary education - vocational, university, skills and lifelong learning.

The cluster, working with other agencies, will be accountable for not just education, but also job outcomes for the next generation.

The government's vocational and skills functions, including TAFE, will transfer from the former Industry cluster to the Education cluster. This ensures a single point of accountability for educating our people, from young children to the elderly.
