The Science Council and Member Bodies education position statements and consultation responses
The Science Council represents the views of its Member Bodies on a broad range of areas across science and its applications. Submissions to government consultations and committee inquiries are compiled by Science Council staff, with input from its Members and partner organistions who are encouraged to contribute to the Science Council's policy submissions.
The Science Council maintains close relationships with government departments, funding agencies responsible for science, education and innovation, and a wide range of stakeholders to ensure that it can respond quickly and effectively to consultations, produce reports and address emerging issues.
Science Council and Member Body submissions are grouped according to topic and all are available to download (see left). For more information on the Science Council's policy work contact Director of Policy & Development, Nicola Hannam.
The Science Council's position statement on science and mathematics education for 5-19 year olds was finalised at its Council meeting in June 2007. This statement is intended as an overarching, high-level statement of the Science Council’s interests, priorities and objectives in education and will be used by the Council as a starting point for more detailed studies and statements.
