The gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and non-Indigenous remains wide, and in some areas, it has even widened over the years.

Statistics show that Indigenous students across Australia are less likely to attend regularly, graduate and leave with sufficient educational skills to enter either higher education or employment.

The 2nd National Indigenous Education Forum provides attendees with practical tools and strategies to implement in schools and communities in order to see improved attendance, engagement and outcomes for students and their families.

Attend this forum and learn how to:

  1. Build trusting and collaborative relationships with communities, families and Elders
  2. Improve student engagement and attendance rates
  3. Build cross-sector partnerships to share resources and improve outcomes
  4. Develop sustainable pathways into higher education and employment

Why attend:

International key note speakers

Over 100 delegates

Speakers from across the country
