SCHOOL SELF- EVAULATION
This framework can be used to stimulate dialogue and action towards a whole setting approach to sciences, technologies, engineering and mathematics (STEM). It can serve as a helpful guide or route map for settings looking to self-evaluate and improve their approach to STEM using the quality indicators within How good is our school? and How good is our early learning and childcare? The framework has been aligned to expectations within the STEM Education and Training Strategy, Developing the Young Workforce and other priorities in education.
