Future Focused

27 November 2019

New South Wales public schools are being re-imagined. With a record investment of more than $2.6 billion over the next four years, our students are being equipped for the world of tomorrow.

Welcome our new Senior Education Officer – Amy!

Upon completing a Bachelor of Education degree, Amy was appointed to a classroom teacher position in a south-western Sydney public school. She was eager to connect not only with the staff and students in her new school, but excited to be able to make a difference in the local community.

As both a classroom teacher and a leader of the Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) program in her school, Amy developed a particular interest in student welfare and a passion for developing positive, safe and supportive learning environments for students.


It’s inspiring to see what can be achieved when the school community works together to support students”.
– Amy Webber

Amy believes that having a growth-mindset is what has allowed her to become an effective teacher and an aspiring leader. She has taken advantage of the many professional learning opportunities available within the department to continually develop her teaching practice.

Amy is excited to share her experience as an early career teacher with those wanting to enter the teaching profession. She is looking forward to promoting the opportunities that are available to teachers in NSW public schools.

Welcome our new Senior Education Officer – Vikki!

23 October 2019

When Vikki finished high school she landed her “dream job” working in the music industry. After a couple of years she started to feel disenchanted and began looking for something more meaningful. She wanted to make a difference.

Working with the NSW Department of Education in primary schools, learning and support (LaST) roles, and executive positions has allowed Vikki to make a difference every day for over 20 years.


The creative and innovative nature of teaching has meant that no two days are ever the same and the range of career opportunities available are endless”.
– Vikki Garrett-Meade

One of Vikki’s main passions is the importance of mentoring for early career teachers. Having a supportive assistant principal when she first entered the profession helped shape the teacher and leader that Vikki is today. In her most recent position as Head Teacher Learning & Support, one of the greatest rewards has been building the capacity of early career teachers working within her team.

Vikki is looking forward to sharing her experiences with those wanting to enter the teaching profession and highlighting the mentoring support that is available to teachers working in NSW public schools.
