A new section, focussing on the pathways and opportunities available to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, has been added to the Make a Difference Teach website.
The Make a Difference Teach website is the recruitment arm of the Dept of Education, Training and Employment, Queensland and the Indigenous teachers’ section has been made possible with the support of the MATSITI project.
Web resources on offer include:
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander teachers sharing their stories about how they are making a difference in their communities and inspiring future generations.
- Access to a diverse range of professional development and leadership opportunities for aspiring and experienced Aboriginal and Torres Strait educators.
The department is also encouraging passionate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander teachers to become Teach Team Ambassadors, to promote teaching to secondary students and to pre-service teachers.
A further aim of the project is to establish partnerships with Indigenous Pathways Coordinators, to promote community-based programs such as Ratep and provide schools with materials to promote study opportunities for Indigenous secondary students.
