ACDE Welcomes New Federal Education Minister Dan Tehan
The Australian Council of Deans of Education(ACDE) welcomes the appointment of The Honourable Dan Tehan as Minister for Education and looks forward to working in collaboration with his fresh approach to education.
‘In previous portfolios Minister Tehan has proven his ability to work very effectively at the grassroots level. This gives ACDE confidence that Minister Tehan will value the vital role of individual teachers, and a high-quality teaching profession, to Australia.’ ACDE President, Professor Tania Aspland says.
‘His roles on several parliamentary committees have no doubt given him insights into dynamic areas that will impact the future of work.
‘We also appreciate how Minister Tehan’s deep knowledge of regional and rural Australia will underpin the ways in which he addresses the challenges specific to education outside Australia’s capital cities,” Professor Aspland says.
‘I look forward to meeting Minister Tehan in the very near future.’
The ACDE also thanks the outgoing Education Minister, Simon Birmingham, and his department for continuing the strong collaborative leadership during the implementation of the TEMAGreport.
