Australian Education Senior Officials Committee (AESOC)

The COAG Education Council is primarily supported by a group of senior officials with responsibility for school education, early childhood and youth affairs who meet as the Australian Education Senior Officials Committee (AESOC). AESOC is directly responsible to the Education Council for the execution of Education Council decisions. Specifically, AEEOC: - provides policy advice to the Education Council - supervises and coordinates the Education Council work across its advisory bodies and working groups; - resolves operational and policy issues before progressing matters raised by ministerial authorities and companies to the Education Council; and - manages and coordinates jurisdictions' funding contributions for nationally agreed projects and initiatives, through the Education Council Secretariat.
