This project builds on Catholic Education NT’s partnership with Charles Darwin University (CDU) in delivering the on-site ‘Growing Our Own‘ pre-service teacher education program in five remote locations in the Northern Territory.
Graduands from the program are supported to transition from study/Assistant Teacher to their teaching roles, to meet requirements for full teacher registration and to teach in a Catholic school in the NT.
The project will use existing relationships built with graduands, principals and school communities, and CDU, to mentor early career Indigenous teachers, establish networks and provide ongoing professional support.
The project is supported by the MATSITI Initiative and will conclude October 2015.
