Policies & procedures

The NSW Government has brought together the NSW Department of Education and Training with Children's Services and Communities NSW to create the Department of Education and Communities.

Our website is being constantly updated to reflect this change. In the interim, policies for the former NSW Department of Education and Training including NSW public schools, TAFE NSW and the corporate directorate can be found on this website.     

To find a policy:

– search using the keyword search or A-Z options located to the right, or

– browse the Schools, TAFE and Corporate sections located to the left to find groups of related policies.

To access policies belonging to other agencies within the department please go to their websites:

Information access

If you can’t find an education and training policy it may be available in another format or there may be a reason why it is not publicly available. For more information contact us or find out how to access information.


We are keen to keep improving the quality of this service. You can help by reporting any bugs, errors or incorrect information and suggestions to improve the site are also welcome. Contact us on communications@det.nsw.edu.au.
