Progress Tracker Substantial
Based on the information made available, progress as at 31 December 2018 was assessed as 77% of the target set for 2018. Progress was assessed by weighting progress of activities outlined in the action plan by their allocation. In the case of one activity in the action plan (ICT in education), no physical targets had been set and no progress information was available in the progress report, and thus this was omitted from the calculation.
