Overview

Education is key to realising successful life prospects. However, many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students remain disadvantaged and often lag behind their non-Indigenous peers.

Literacy and numeracy inadequacy remains high throughout communities, and few are in a position to pursue higher education. As a result of poor education skills, the unemployment rate among Australia’s Indigenous population is shockingly high.

Akolade’s National Indigenous Education Forum focuses on how to effectively improve educational outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youths. Leaders from across the nation will share their case studies and strategies, which delegates can develop and adopt into their own organisations.

Attend this practical forum and learn how to:

    Engage family and elders to be involved in the children’s education

    Improve student engagement for better academic outcomes and increased attendance rates

    Prepare students for transitioning into further education, employment and adulthood

    Create culturally safe and stimulating learning environments for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students

    Build cross-sector partnerships to share resources and improve education outcomes

Why attend:

    International key note speakers

    Over 100 delegates

    Speakers from across the country

    Practical case studies from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities
