Education Council Meetings

In accordance with COAG guidelines, the Education Council decides annually the frequency and format of meetings for the coming year, based upon the work program. The location of meetings is at the Chair’s discretion, usually restricted to capital cities of Australia. Other meetings may be held by teleconference or videoconference. The Education Council Chair and Secretariat ensure that meeting dates are set to enable a clear majority of Ministers to attend. Remaining 2017 Education Council Meeting dates are as follows:

16 December 2016       Melbourne

07 April 2017                 Hobart

18 May 2017       Adelaide

Further meetings will be conducted, when necessary, to progress key items of work.
