Although the work of the Department of Education extends across many of the 14 Outcomes in the Programme for Government, its key area of focus lies within Outcome 14 – we give our children and young people the best start in life.

The Department is leading on the development of Delivery Plans for the following 4 of the 42 indicators in the Programme for Government:

  • Indicator 11: Improve Educational Outcomes
  • Indicator 12: Reduce Educational Inequality
  • Indicator 13: Improve the Quality of Education
  • Indicator 15: Improve Child Development

Draft Delivery Plans will inform the next public consultation on the overall Programme for Government, scheduled to launch in October 2016.

Further information will be provided once the Programme for Government has been approved by the Executive and Assembly.
