The Board is required to develop a strategic plan annually in accordance with the Financial and Performance Management Standard 2009. The Funding Committee is not a statutory body in its own right; however, members of the Board and the Funding Committee have expressed a desire for the Funding Committee’s strategic direction to be encompassed in the Board’s strategic plan, in recognition of the significant and important functions of the Funding Committee.
The Strategic Plan is a public statement of how the Board and the Funding Committee will undertake their statutory obligations and contribute to the Government’s social and fiscal objectives during the period covered by the plan.
The Plan provides a statement of why the Board and the Funding Committee exist as entities, their directions for the future and, in broad terms, how they intend to get there. It therefore identifies the core services of the Board and Funding Committee and details corresponding goals, strategies and performance measures by which they can measure the standard of service delivery of their outputs.
The development of an effective strategic plan informs the activities of the Board and the Funding Committee, as it assists in assuring that these contribute to high-quality performance in undertaking statutory obligations, as well as to the priorities and direction of Government.
The Education (Accreditation of Non-State Schools) Act 2001, the Education (Accreditation of Non-State Schools) Regulation 2001 and the Government’s social and fiscal objectives for the State provide the framework within which the latest Strategic Plan has been developed.
The key result areas and corresponding goals, strategies and performance measures were formulated by members of the Board and the Funding Committee in consultation with the Minister for Education.
The Board publishes its annual report online. Each annual report deals with the activities of the Board and the Funding Committee for a financial year.
