As of 1 July, the former SCSEEC (Standing
Council on School Education and Early Childhood) will be 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.
A copy of the COAG communique from 13 December 2013 can be found here.
