Scoring goals: #ourmobteach presentation by the University of Queensland
Scoring Goals is a project that utilises sport to connect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to a career in Health and Physical Education teaching.
This collaborative project utilises four sport-related programs to promote and recruit Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people into the UQ Bachelor of Health, Sport and Physical Education (BHSPE):
- UQ’s Indigenous Youth Sport Program;
- Brisbane Broncos Pathway to Success
- School-based traineeships; and
- School (sport) scholarship programs.
Scoring Goals also focuses on establishing adequate mentoring and support for students to achieve successfully. The UQ ATSIS Unit works collaboratively with stakeholders to develop a range of support strategies tailored to the specific needs of students.
