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
