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.

“The National Indigenous Education forum was a unique opportunity to network with likeminded people across the nation, sharing ideas, experiences and contact information to create a network of support professionally!”
“The National Indigenous education forum in Darwin was the best I have attended. Very high standing”
“The skills and expertise of presenters was evident. It was great to spend time with other passionate professionals, genuinely trying to make a difference in Indigenous Education.”
“The forum covered all the topics that were to be addressed, and provided key strategies to implement within the classroom and the entire school. I would most defiantly attend a future forum and be interested in similar agendas to discuss.”
“This event was a wonderful opportunity to meet with other interested educationalists. To hear about the highs and lows of our indigenous students and to hear about opportunities or strategies that are having some impact if even on a small scale.”
“The breadth and scope of the presentations at this conference was amazing. Cross sector professionals sharing latest and best practice was amazing.”
“The National Indigenous Education Forum was a wonderful opportunity to hear from a range of speakers and to gain practical insights into indigenous education. The conference was professional organised and catered for. Most importantly, students in our schools will benefit from the time we spent learning from each other.”
