The Ministry for Education and Employment

The objective of the Ministry for Education and Employment is to provide present and future generations with the necessary skills and talents for citizenship and employability, in the 21st century and beyond.

Our children need to develop their personal and social potential and acquire the appropriate knowledge, key skills, competences and attitudes through a value-oriented formation including equity, social justice, diversity and inclusivity. 

The Ministry for Education and Employment is committed to continually improve on the services it offers.  The Ministry works closely with the Better Regulation Unit and the Commissioner for Simplification and Reduction of Bureaucracy, to ensure that Better Regulation principles and procedures are applied consistently throughout the Ministry.
