The NSW Department of Education (NSW DoE) has partnered with Evidence for Learning to map educational approaches in the Teaching & Learning Toolkit to the School Excellence Framework.
The School Excellence Framework (the Framework) describes 14 elements across three domains of ‘Learning’, ‘Teaching’ and ‘Leading’ which define the core business of excellent schools in three stages. Each year, schools will assess their practices against the Framework to inform their school plans and annual school reports. The description of excellence in the Framework supports schools as they engage their communities in the development of a shared vision, the identification of strategic priorities, and the ongoing tracking of progress towards them.
The Teaching & Learning Toolkit can help educators as they consider approaches for their school. Use the links below to access the Toolkit approaches mapped to each element by domain. Visit the NSW DoE’s Centre for Education Statistics and Evaluation webpage to engage with the School Excellence Framework as well as other regularly updated publications and resources.
