better attendance and retention rates of Aboriginal students

Background to the Aboriginal Education Strategy 2018 - 2028

The Aboriginal Education directorate within the Department for Education is currently developing the new Aboriginal Education strategy 2018 to 2028. The South Australian strategy will follow on from the previous DECD Aboriginal Strategy 2013 to 2016.

Development of the South Australian strategy is supported by the South Australian Aboriginal Education and Training Consultative Committee (SAAETCC) and will align with the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education strategy developed in 2015.

The strategy aims to support improved learning outcomes for Aboriginal children and young people, better attendance and retention rates of Aboriginal students and training to ensure teachers, education staff and leaders are culturally responsive.

The State Government and Professor Peter Buckskin via the South Australian Aboriginal Education and Training Consultative Council (SAAETCC), who will represent the Aboriginal community, will work with Aboriginal education leaders, experts, families, students and community members to inform and implement the strategy.

Input into the development of the strategy is sought from families, carers, students, education staff and the community with consultations commencing on 6 June 2018.
