Education Directorate Governance Framework

The Education Directorate’s Governance Framework provides an overview of governance in the Education Directorate (the Directorate). It informs and introduces staff to good governance practices and frameworks that promote the principles of good governance across the Directorate.

The aim of the framework is to assist each staff member to understand their personal accountabilities, in the context of their legislated responsibilities as a member of the Australian Capital Territory Public Service (under the Public Sector Management Act 1994 (PSM Act)), where applicable, as a delegate of the Director-General and in contributing to the performance of the Directorate.

The Framework is also designed to provide the conditions for:

  • unified leadership by providing the Executive and staff with clearly defined responsibilities;
  • high performance through integration of functions as well as strategic, operational and individual performance planning and management processes;
  • a decision making environment that considers risk and provides transparency in managing situations that may prevent us from meeting our objectives; and
  • a culture of deep collaboration, where we are confident about working together to seek solutions and solve problems;
    being an organisation that honestly supports each other and acts in a humble and genuine way.

The following documents make up the framework:
