Policy & Research Submissions

CNPE’s reports and submissions align to our objectives and are key to how we, and other stakeholders, are shaping the education policy debate.

A fairer education system – where a young person’s background or school does not constrain their future life and work.

A future focused education system – which prepares all young people for their future life and work, providing them with the skills, capabilities and knowledge to succeed.

Young people shaping education – at a classroom, school and system level, and are partners in learning
