Notes:

1. The Department underwent a reorganisation and the Audit Committee reviewed its requirements and increased its membership to six.

Remuneration for senior executives Section 10 of the Remuneration Tribunal Act 1995 requires its administrative body (the Tribunal) to inquire into and determine the remuneration, allowances and other entitlements of the Chief Executive and those persons who are executives within the meaning of the Public Sector Management Act 1994.

The Tribunal, in a determination made in June 2009, decided to increase the remuneration for chief executives and executives by

1.5 percent with effect from 1 July 2009.

During the reporting period the vehicle cash out component of executive remuneration was increased effective August 2009.

Corporate and Operational Plans Strategic Plan The Strategic Plan provides the organisational context to enable the Department to deliver a sustainable world-class education and training system that is responsive to changing needs of the ACT community.

During this reporting period the Strategic Plan 2006-09 was replaced by the Strategic Plan 2010-2013: Everyone matters. The new plan has at its core the aim of ensuring all young people in the ACT learn, thrive and are equipped with the skills to lead fulfilling, productive and responsible lives.

To achieve the Department’s vision and purpose, the Strategic Plan

identifies priorities and performance measures in four areas:

1. Learning and teaching

2. School environment

3. Student pathways and transitions

4. Leadership and corporate development.

The priority areas link the Department’s legislative objectives to its strategic outcomes and focus resources on achieving operational commitments. An overview of the Department’s achievements against its strategic objectives is provided in section A2.

The School Improvement in ACT Public Schools: Directions 2010is linked to the Strategic Plan and was developed during the reporting period to provide an integrated and systematic approach to school improvement based on the principle that the core work of all school leaders is to improve student learning outcomes.

Reporting on strategic goals and outcomes is primarily done through the Department’s Annual Report. In 2010, the Institute of Public Administration Australia, ACT Division, presented the Department with a silver award, in recognition of the quality of reporting in the 2008-09 reporting year.

Business planning Supporting the Strategic Plan is the Operational Plan, which details the operational activities and outcomes that reflect the Department’s priorities for the year and specify performance indicators by which performance is measured. The performance of directors and principals is monitored against performance targets in these plans. The Operational Plan is published on the Department’s website.

During the reporting period, the Department’s business planning processes were reviewed to ensure that branch actions were aligned to strategic priorities and that performance indicators incorporated reporting requirements of partnerships and agreements. Quarterly reporting of achievement against branch business plans will be introduced in the next reporting period.

Individual school plans are made available to school communities and published on school websites. The school plan is a blueprint that outlines how the school will achieve improved levels of performance. In addition, an annual operating plan sets out how the school plan will be progressed in that year. These plans are internal to the school.
