Sydney Regional Director appointed

Dr Phil Lambert has been appointed Sydney Regional Director under the Department's new administration structure.

This new structure has given the Department a renewed focus on supporting frontline teachers and school staff and enables the provision of better responses to local issues.

The creation of school educational areas within the regional structure also ensures that support services, such as curriculum consultants, welfare and training experts, remain close to local schools.
