  • WHY?


Learn earn legend indigenous education forum 2010

  • Education is at point in time where all Australian education systems are being challenged to ‘close the gap’ between Indigenous and non-Indigenous student outcomes.


Learn earn legend indigenous education forum 2010

  • We know there are specific challenges facing our indigenous youth with respect to education and training, and engagement with education and training providers. In order to help with these challenges and present the youth with opportunities, specific projects and programs are being developed in line with current and known research initiatives and in line with National and State policy.


Learn earn legend indigenous education forum 2010

  • COAG – National Indigenous Reform Agreement (NIRA)

  • The NIRA captures the objectives, outcomes, outputs, performance measures and benchmarks that all governments have committed to achieving through the various National Agreements (NAs) and National Partnership (NP) Agreements to achieve the six Council of Australian Government (COAG) targets.


Learn earn legend indigenous education forum 2010

  • The six COAG Closing the Gap targets are to:

  • close the gap in life expectancy within a generation

  • halve the gap in mortality rates for Indigenous children under five within a decade

  • ensure all Indigenous four-year-olds in remote communities have access to early childhood education within five years

  • halve the gap for Indigenous students in reading, writing and numeracy within a decade

  • halve the gap for Indigenous students in Year 12 attainment or equivalent attainment by 2020

  • halve the gap in employment outcomes between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians within a decade.


Learn earn legend indigenous education forum 2010

  • The Department of Education and Training's Closing the Gap Education Strategy has three key targets:

  • to halve the gap in Year 3 reading and numeracy by 2012 and

  • to close the gap in student attendance by 2013

  • To close the gap in Year 12 retention by 2013

  • Some inconclusive findings


Learn earn legend indigenous education forum 2010

  • Schools are at a variety of stages

  • Providing a variety of different programs for their students
