â€œEducation as a pathway to good jobs is the Governmentâ€™s top priority in â€˜Closing The Gapâ€™ in employment outcomes between Indigenous & non-Indigenous Australians within a decade.â€
(The Hon Julie Collins MP, Minister for Community Services, Indigenous Employment, Economic Development & Minister for the Status of Women)
The third event in this highly successful series, the Indigenous Education,Transitions & Employment Conference will discuss current Government and Non-Government programs â€“ emphasising the importance of the transition process from school into tertiary education or the workforce.

Building a sustainable support network will assist Indigenous educational retainment and strengthen the transition process for a sustainable future.
Offering a wide range of experts within the education, training, transitions and employment sectors, you will hear valuable and sustainable strategies to help â€˜Close The Gapâ€™ with Indigenous education and employment outcomes.
Gain insights into:
-How to retain Indigenous employees in the workforce
-How the power of partnerships can build educational ambitions
-Examples of sustainable pathways
-How to identify current barriers and characteristics to achieve positive outcomes
