The NSW Department of Education is the largest provider of public education in Australia with responsibility for delivering high-quality public education to two-thirds of the NSW student population. 

Our public schools service the diverse range of communities across the state, enabling all children and young people to have access to quality education.

We ensure young children get the best start in life by supporting and regulating the early childhood education sector. 

We support the delivery of a skilled and employable workforce for NSW through post-school vocational education and training, as well as higher education.
