Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Education & Transitions

Information

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students are outperformed at almost every level of schooling. At a grass-roots level this is influenced by school resources and teaching practices not being adequate enough for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to engage in a rigorous curriculum. This often results in students being diverted into a low track curriculum, with little exposure to the content needed to enter University, or develop the skills needed to sustain further education, training or employment.

The Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Education & Transitions conference will focus on strategies to improve educational outcomes and support transitions for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.

Attend & learn how to:
- Engage parents & communities in children’s education
- Embed cultural knowledge in our schools
- Support through the challenges of transitioning
- Promote a positive sense of cultural identity
- Provide students with the skills they need to thrive

Who will attend?
- Catholic Education Offices
- Independent, Catholic & State Schools
- Universities
- Career Services
- Associations & Peak Bodies
- TAFEs & RTOs
- State & Federal Government Departments of Education
