This STEM Education Policy Statement and Implementation Plan sets an ambitious journey up to 2026. It will be dynamic and will constantly evolve to meet the challenges of the future. The actions in this Policy Statement will be implemented over three phases between 2017 and 2026. Implementation will be periodically reviewed, to ensure that it is responsive to the changing environment. This Policy Statement contains challenging proposals which require commitment across the education system to achieve the stated ambitions. Success cannot be achieved by my Department alone, it identifies the collaborative action required between my Department and all relevant stakeholders to realise our vision for STEM education by 2026.
