Dear Ms Joy

 

Thank you for contacting the Australian Government Department of Education
and Training (the department) on 9 April 2018 requesting:

 

"Could you please send through the latest documents that include the
guidelines for certification and training of sexuality education external
educators in schools?

 

If possible, please treat this as an administrative/informal request.
Otherwise, please proceed with my request as a formal information request
under the Act."

 

And, on 12 April 2018 requesting:

 

“Could you please send through the latest documents that include the
following:

 

1. Guidelines of sexuality education for schools 2. School policies on
teacher-student relationships 3. School reports on indecent behaviours

 

If possible, please treat this as an administrative/informal request.
Otherwise, please proceed with my request as a formal information request
under the Act.”

 

For the following reasons, the department does not hold documents relevant
to the above requests.

 

As a federal department, this department does not employ educators. The
state and territory education departments and non-government education
authorities are responsible for the delivery of school education,
including the employment of teachers and school staff. As such, you may
wish to contact the relevant education authorities in each state and
territory. We have attached a contact list for your convenience.

 

Similarly, the state and territory education authorities are best placed
to answer questions about guidelines and school policies on a range of
matters, including the matters you have raised.

 

The Australian Government has a national leadership role in matters such
as the establishment of an Australian Curriculum. However, it is state and
territory and non-government education authorities and schools that are
responsible for how the curriculum is implemented and taught in schools.
Below, we have provided examples of content in the Australian Curriculum
that is relevant to your requests.

 

As the department does not hold any documents within the scope of your two
requests, the department will deem your requests withdrawn unless you
advise that you do not withdraw your requests by close of business Tuesday
24 April 2018.

 

Kind regards
