Conference Description:

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

Attend and learn how to:
Engage parents and 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
