Hundreds of new experts to lift literacy and numeracy


Hundreds of new literacy and numeracy experts will join NSW public schools as part of the NSW Government’s continued focus on lifting student results.

 

As part of a $256 million investment, every public primary school across NSW will receive a dedicated Curriculum Assistant Principal.

 

Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the more than 1,300 new positions will strengthen a continuous focus on literacy and numeracy and support curriculum implementation with the new K-2 English and Mathematics syllabuses rolling out from 2022.

 

“The NSW Government is committed to the highest quality of education in our public schools and improving literacy and numeracy in the early years is key to this,” Ms Mitchell said.

 

The initiative is a core part of the new School Success Model, which ensures evidence-based teaching and best practice are implemented across the system and support is targeted.

 

“We are building a world class curriculum and these new positions will support teachers to deliver it in the best way possible,” Ms Mitchell said.

 

The new positions have an explicit focus on leading schools with evidence-based teaching and assessments to improve student outcomes. The leadership roles will support a strong instructional leadership model in all schools, coordinating professional learning for teachers, monitoring student outcomes, and supporting families to be key partners in student learning.

 

The new program will begin from 2022, with all positions in place ahead of full implementation of the new K-2 English and Mathematics Syllabuses in 2023.
