The National Catholic Education Commission (NCEC) is established by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference through the Bishops Commission for Catholic Education to maintain effective liaison with the Commonwealth Government and other key national education bodies. NCEC complements and supports at the national level the work of the State and Territory Catholic Education Commissions.

The National Catholic Education Commission congratulates the Government for gaining bipartisan support for the Australian Education Amendment Bill, the first step in reducing red tape for schools and providing additional funding to Indigenous boarding students and some special schools.
The Bill this morning passed the Senate, after passage in the House of Representatives last month.
"Principals and teachers are dedicated to the learning needs of their students. They regularly share their frustration over paperwork and red tape at the expense of quality teaching and learning," said NCEC executive director Ross Fox.
