The Aboriginal Teacher Early Career Aspiring Leaders Program will provide mentoring and leadership development opportunities for up to 20 early career Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander teachers in rural and remote locations in NSW public schools.
This program will target aspiring teachers who have at least three years teaching experience who are demonstrating outstanding teaching and leadership capabilities in their current position and who aspire to become school leaders.
Participants will be matched with a current leader in a NSW public school to support their personal and professional development and a detailed career plan.
The retention of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander teachers in rural and remote locations will ensure that teachers remain connected to country and contribute to improving student learning outcomes.
The Aboriginal Teacher Early Career Aspiring Leaders Program is led by the Human Resources Directorate NSW Department of Education and Communities
The education career promotion is supported by the MATSITI initiative.
