A summary report of the outcomes and actions from the second MATSITI National Forum A Deadly Career! is now available.
The Deadly Career Forum was designed to engage the hearts and minds of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and supporters to consider teaching as a career of choice – for young people, for adults considering a career change or to further develop their current education career.
The forum included over 100 attendees, 20 presentations and workshops, with a further 30 people logging in to a national webinar on 21st century Indigenous education.
Some of the Forum content and discussions can be viewed at:

Where to next?
- A suite of national promotional campaign templates and resources to attract our people into teaching – adaptable to local context, using digital media with face-to-face events and strong positive messages
- Social media channels such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn have great potential to amplify messages and connect individuals and agencies
- Further engaging our community leaders and organisations to advocate for education and increasing our presence and influence in the education workforce.
MATSITI will be investing up to $3 million in 2014-15 through an EOI process to help attract and retain ‘our mob’ into a successful teaching career – advice from delegates has helped shape and strategise ideas generated at the forum workshops.

Not only have I been challenged to step outside my comfort zone but also encouraged me to extend myself professionally (teacher education student)
