The National Council on Education envisions that through its efforts and those of its partners, the learners of Jamaica will have access to services, which will ultimately enable them to realize their full potential and become productive, culturally aware, ethical and worthwhile citizens who are globally competitive.


To provide leadership in stimulating, advising and promoting consensus in the development of educational policies to support the nation’s pursuit of a comprehensive, coherent and consistent system of education.

About Us

The establishment of the NCE was born out of the need to have a non-partisan, national and strategically placed organisation that would "address a wide range of issues impacting on the education process".
