Outcomes Framework for Children and Young People

The primary function of the inaugural Child Development Council is to prepare an Outcomes Framework for Children and Young People in the areas of health; safety; wellbeing; education; and citizenship (including preparedness for adulthood).

The Outcomes Framework is a way or means of telling how South Australia’s children and young people are developing and progressing over time. The main focus of the Outcomes Framework is to track, monitor and report on the agreed outcomes to be achieved for all children and young people in South Australia with indicators and measures that will allow longitudinal tracking and reporting.

The Outcomes Framework must have provisions designed to improve the outcomes of Aboriginal children and young people.

In developing the Outcomes Framework, the Council must engage children and young people, their parents, carers, families and others.

Outcomes Framework Consultation

Children and young people shared their views on proposed indicators and measures for the Outcomes Framework dimensions of health, safety, wellbeing, education and citizenship via an online survey, focus groups and forums.
