Description

Overview

The Department of Education and Training (DET) has committed to build genuine partnerships with Koorie learners and communities at all levels to support self-determination.

We recognise the unique status of Koorie people, and as Australia’s First Peoples, the right to self-determination in education. We maintain high aspirations and expectations for the development and educational achievement of Koorie learners.

Marrung: Aboriginal Education Plan 2016-2026

In June 2016, we launched Marrung: Aboriginal Education Plan 2016-2026 (Marrung). Marrung is a 10-year integrated plan, developed in partnership with the Victorian Aboriginal community including our principal partner in Koorie education, the Victorian Aboriginal Education Association Incorporated (VAEAI).

Marrung action 8a

The Promoting participation and engagement for Koorie learners in VET discussion paper is an overview to support meaningful conversation and consultation. The paper was co-authored with VAEAI and outlines our plans to implement Marrung action 8a:

“Develop options for a revised approach to supporting Koorie learners engage and participate successfully in VET [including] through the redesign of the existing Koorie VET workforce”

The paper explores the evidence that shows a revised approach is needed to support Koorie learners to engage and participate successfully in vocational education and training (VET). It focuses on:

  • changes in the characteristics of Koorie communities in Victoria
  • enrolment trends for Koorie learners across the spectrum of VET providers
  • current supports designed to increase Koorie engagement and participation in VET
  • success enablers, and barriers for improving Koorie learner outcomes.

The paper includes 20 questions to stimulate discussion about how to support Koorie participation and engagement in Victoria’s VET system.
