NSW Department of Education

The NSW Department of Education serves the community by leading the provision of world-class education. The department protects young children by regulating preschool and long day care providers. Once children move into school, we provide them with a world-class primary and secondary education. We also work to advance the wellbeing of Aboriginal people.

The department is the largest education provider in Australia. More than 760,000 students are enrolled in NSW public schools and we employ more than 84,000 staff.
