Your story project

Improving teacher education for the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students is a major Australian higher education and schooling priority area, with teachers and school leaders needing to ‘engage professionally with colleagues, parents/carers and the community’ (Standard 7, Australian Professional Standards for Teachers, AITSL) and to work inclusively with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and their families. This has been identified as the area in which beginning teachers feel the most underprepared. The resources developed by this project empower schools and teachers to build effective partnerships with First Nations peoples and communities, contributing to improvements in outcomes for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
