Objective: Learners have materials to access and fully participate in education, and the resources to function well and actively engage.
The Department of Education has a role to play in ensuring that the basics are in place for learners to access and fully participate in education.
This includes providing resources for a child or student to function well and actively engage.
What material basics look like varies in different learning environments. It may include breakfast clubs to set students up for a day’s learning, tools for learning such as laptops and books, a school uniform to connect students to their school community, or transport to get to and from school.
