This series comprises working files of Cabinet Committees relating to the Minister of Education/Training/Employment.

Cabinet Committees provide a forum to deliberate on more complex issues requiring dedicated and longer term attention by stakeholder Ministers. The Premier or Cabinet may establish Cabinet Committees as well as determine Committee membership and terms of reference.

Two types of Cabinet Committees may be established:
•Standing Committees which deal with long-term and cross-portfolio issues requiring detailed consideration prior to Cabinet approval of particular proposals. These committees may be supported by officials from relevant agencies dependent on the issue being considered
•Special Purpose Committees which are functional Committees established from time to time to consider matters of detail and of particular concern to the Premier/Cabinet. They have special terms of reference and may be supported by advisors drawn from the private, public sector or legislature.

The Cabinet Secretariat distributes Committee submissions in the same way as Cabinet submissions. At the discretion of the Premier, submissions may be circulated as flying minutes on less contentious issues to member Ministers to consider individually, rather than at an in-session Committee meeting. The flying minute process is used by Cabinet Committees to make optimal use of member Ministers' time. The process enables focussed and dedicated deliberation of more complex and difficult issues than at in-session meetings.
