Aussie Educator

Acronyms

acronym [n.]

An abbreviation formed from the initial letters of other words and pronounced as a word [e.g. ASCII, NASA].
Oxford Dictionaries

Acronyms are found throughout our language from ATM [Automatic Teller Machine] and ABC [Australian Broadcasting Corporation] to LOL [lots of luck / little old lady] and SCUBA [Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus]. Some are called initialisms, rather than acronyms as they are not pronounced as words.

They are also found in every field of endeavour, including education. They can be used for actions, items and more specifically groups. Think of NAPLAN, NIDA, PISA, STEM and VET, to name just a few.

The following list covers acronyms/initialisms related to Australian education. It includes groups, departments, examinations, linked bodies and more. While there are many listed, it does not cover all. More will be added as they are found.
