Published on

The Centre for Education Statistics and Evaluation (CESE) is Australia’s first dedicated hub for in-depth analysis of education practices and their effectiveness using reliable data and knowledge. CESE plays a critical role in guiding New South Wales through a period of reform; introducing skills reform and improvements to early childhood education and care, and plans to improve teaching quality and school decision making.

CESE provides sound evidence upon which policy makers and educators can focus teaching and learning priorities and target investment to meet current and emerging needs for New South Wales teachers, students, parents and families, industry, and learning institutions in an increasingly sophisticated and competitive global framework.

CESE commissions, conducts and manages projects to assess education program effectiveness and efficiency; from early learning, through schooling, and vocational training and higher education.
