NTCE review

The NTCE was reviewed, and resulted in changes to the way senior secondary education is structured in the Nothern Territory. The NTCET has been phased in from 2009 with the Personal Learning Plan beginning undertaken by Year 10 students, to 2011. No student will be disadvantaged as a result of this change. The NTCET will be designed to support the diverse needs to students across the Territory, and to recognise many different forms of learning that our young people are undertaking.
