Launched in 2020 after many years of deliberation, the National Education Policy 2020 (NEP) signals India’s agenda for universal, quality, accessible and inclusive school education, accessible, quality higher education and impactful research.
This report summarises key elements of the NEP reforms for school education, higher education, vocational education, and research and research training, including preliminary steps taken since the NEP was launched.
It briefly provides contextual materials regarding Australia’s existing engagements and reflects the contributions of over 200 Australian and Indian stakeholders at a series of roundtables. It seeks to answer the question, “What actions can Australia take to maximise the impact of the NEP reforms on Australia-India education engagement”?
This report was commissioned by the Australian Department of Education, Skills and Employment (DESE).
