As of 1 July, the former Standing Council on School Education and Early Childhood (SCSEEC) became known as the Education Council. Terms of Reference (ToR) for the
new Council are currently being developed and will be considered by COAG in due course.
The Education Council will continue to operate under SCSEEC Terms of Reference until COAG endorses the new
COAG Council System
The Council of Australian Governments (COAG) met in December 2013 and agreed to new Council arrangements, including the establishment of an Education Council. The Education Council will be one of eight under the new COAG Council system.
