Indigenous Education Statements

Overview


The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C) requires information from Universities relating to their outcomes and future plans to meet their ongoing responsibilities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student achievement in higher education.

These responsibilities include assessing and reporting on progress towards improved educational outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as set out in the goals of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Policy.

The Indigenous Education Statement is used to determine University's eligibility for Indigenous Support Programme (ISP) funding. Please refer to the Higher Education Support Act 2003 – Other Grants Guidelines (Education) 2008 which details ISP grant conditions.
