Overview

The Bendigo Education Plan 2028 is an exciting opportunity to develop a localised plan for the next ten years that aligns with the Education State.

The plan will build on learnings from the previous education plan, the Bendigo Education Plan 2005, to support the Education State’s vision to give every Victorian the opportunity to succeed in life, regardless of background, place or circumstance.

This plan will be developed in partnership with the Bendigo community and input is being sought from a broad range of groups and individuals. The initial objective of the plan will be to define a course of action to improve quality and access to education in the Bendigo region over the next ten years, with further targets and objectives informed by the outcomes of this planning phase.

We are seeking community ideas as the first step before the draft plan is written. Please leave your ideas by completing the survey below or posting on the comment board. There are also opportunities for the community to provide input through face-to-face forums on 19 and 20 September 2017.
