For 2014, Australian Government funding for schools will be made available under the Australian Education Act 2013. The Act requires that QCEC, as an approved system authority receiving and distributing funds to Catholic schooling authorities according to needs based group funding arrangements, must have an Implementation Plan to set out activities, programs and initiatives to be undertaken to contribute to achieving the objects of the Act.

The QCEC Implementation Plan was developed through 2013 in collaboration with Catholic schooling authorities who will progress the activities. A much more abbreviated version of the plan has now been negotiated with the Australian Government and Department of Education.
The draft Guide to the Australian Education Act 2013 provides more information.
