An inclusive education for every young Victorian

Teachers and families have done an incredible job in supporting our students.

We want to help make their school communities stronger than ever, delivering an historic investment in inclusive education.

In addition to upgrading 39 specialist schools, a $1.6 billion investment will transform support for students with disability, doubling the number of students receiving extra support to 55,000.

A world-leading pilot in more than 100 schools will now be rolled out across Victoria, putting the needs of students with disability at the heart of our response.

Every government school will benefit from the reform, which will enable access to students who may have previously been ineligible for targeted support – such as those with autism, dyslexia or complex behaviours.

This reform will be supported by the creation of up to 1,730 jobs across the State by 2025, as well as new support and resources for our incredible school staff in delivering inclusive education for every student.
