Follow-up of Maintenance of public schools (Report 11: 2014-15) and Oversight of recurrent grants to non-state schools (Report 12: 2014-15).

The Department of Education, Training and Employment is responsible for providing a safe working and learning environment for its staff and students in school campuses across Queensland. Well-maintained school buildings and grounds contribute to the safety of staff and students and to educational outcomes. When funding is inadequate, asset maintenance backlogs occur. As a result, school buildings and school ground facilities can deteriorate much faster than intended.

Non-state schools receive grants from the state and Australian governments – administered by the Department of Education, Training and Employment. To qualify, these schools submit to the Non-State Schools Accreditation Board (the Board), which is a statutory body that reports directly to the Minister for Education.

In 2014–15, we tabled performance audit reports Maintenance of public schools (Report 11: 2014-15) and Oversight of recurrent grants to non-state schools (Report 12: 2014-15).
