About Australian Education

Australia is a federation consisting of six States and two Territories, each with its own government, and the overarching Australian Government. This political and legislative structure influences the division of responsibilities in the governance of Australian education and training. The Australian Government’s role is to develop national policies and strategies for education, whereas State and Territory governments are responsible for delivering education within their borders. 

Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations website provides information on Australian Government policies, activities and initiatives: www.education.gov.au/

Information on schooling in Australia’s States and Territories can be found on the websites of the State and Territory education departments:

Australian Education International 

Australian Education International (AEI) is part of the Australian Government’s Department of Education, Science and Training. AEI officers work in Australia and many parts of the world to develop and support Australia ’s international involvement in education, science and training.
