National Indigenous Education Forum
Date: 18 – 20 October 2017
Location: Hilton Darwin
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.
