History

The Department of Education Services was established to contribute to the development of an integrated and efficient education system in WA. The Department was created through the amalgamation of the Education Policy and Coordination Bureau and the Western Australian Office of Non-Government Education, the integration of the Country High School Hostels Authority and the transfer of responsibility for administrating the Education Service Providers (Full Fee Overseas Students) Registration Act 1991.

The transfer of responsibilities from these agencies was reflected in the organisational structure of the new department. The Department of Education Services incorporated four operational units:

1. Office of Non-government Education

2. Office of Higher Education

3. Office of Country High Schools Hostels Authority

4. Office of Education Policy and Co-ordination

The Department also provided administrative support to the Aboriginal Education and Training Council, the Rural and Remote Education Advisory Council, Western Australian Higher Education Council (WAHEC), Non-Government Schools Planning Advisory Committee and the Western Australian College of Teaching Interim Board.

Under the McGowan Government, a series of Machinery of Government changes were made to the public sector creating a number of new amalgamated departments. The Department of Education, Department of Education Services and the School Curriculum and Standards Authority were merged to form the Department of Education on 1 July 2017.
